Celtic have completed the first signing of the Brendan Rodgers era.

Fulham's 19-year-old striker Moussa Dembele is moving to Parkhead on a four-year deal.

The French player - who was linked with a number of European clubs and Spurs recently - was out of contract with Fulham.


Here's the Celtic statement.

Celtic are delighted to announce the signing of Moussa Dembele from Fulham on a four-year contract, beginning on July 1.

The talented striker becomes Brendan Rodgers’ first signing of the summer and the highly-rated 19-year-old Frenchman will join up with his new team-mates for pre-season training in Slovenia.
Dembele joins the Hoops from English Championship side Fulham where he moved to at the age of 16 after starting his career in France with Paris Saint-Germain.

The teenager enjoyed a successful debut campaign, winning the Premier Academy League with the club’s Under-18 team, before starring for the Cottagers in the Premier League and the Championship, where he scored 17 goals in all competitions last season.

The forward’s stunning season unsurprisingly made him a much sought-after player in the summer transfer window, and Celtic have won the race for his signature.
Moussa Dembele will speak to the press at Celtic Park later today.

As Dembele is under 24, Fulham will be due compensation for the player. According to the Daily Mail, that could be around £350,000.

Here's a little taste of what he's capable of.
