Bayern Munich Sign Teenage Winger From Celtic

Always improve your squad when you're in a position of strength.

That's a principle that Alex Ferguson understood and even though they're undoubtedly the best team in Europe, Bayern Munich still have one eye on the future.

Despite their recent treble - the second treble they've achieved in the last 7 years - the Bavarian's are constantly looking towards the future and the German champions have announced the signature of Celtic winger Barry Hepburn.

The 16-year-old attacker will join Bayern's youth department and speaking about the transfer, Bayern's campus director, Jochen Sauer, said: "We are very happy that the transfer of Barry worked. He is an offensive player with a lot of potential that we want to help with his further development steps."

The Scottish u-17 international will now become a part of Danny Schwarz's u-17 panel.

Hepburn becomes the second Scot in Bayern's underage setup, joining his former Celtic clubmate Liam Morrison at the club, and the third on their books overall after Alan McInally, who won the title with Bayern in 1990.

Another young Scottish star, Hearts defender Aaron Hickey, has also been linked with a move to the Allianz Arena.
