More news on the US International transfer front this January as Timothy Weah has joined Celtic F.C. on loan from Paris Saint Germain.
After an impressive preseason with the Parisian giants, 18-year-old American striker Tim Weah hopes to thrive up front with his loan spell for The Bhoys in Scotland.
Weah grew up playing in the New York Red Bull academy until he signed for the PSG academy at age 14 in 2004. He is highly rated by the entire coaching staff in Paris, but finding it difficult to get playing time ahead of the star-studded front line of Killian M’Bappe, Neymar, and Edinson Cavani.
Weah joins Brendan Rogers’ title-chasing Celtic side and is hoping to find some silverware. His PSG teammate Neymar have weighed in on the move and the talent Weah possesses.
"It is a very exciting move for him from what I have seen of his talent he has everything to go and be one of the top attacking players in Europe," Neymar told the Daily Record.
"It is a good move for him, a good move for Celtic as they are getting such a big talent, and also a good move for PSG because he has a chance to get experience and games and come back to us a more complete player.
"He did have options - but he chose the right one. Celtic are a big club, in their league they attack a lot and score a lot of goals, and also they are still in Europe - so they offer him much."
Timothy Weah is the son of George Weah, the President of Liberia and former Ballon d’or Winner, has big shoes to fill at PSG with his father’s impact on the club.
Weah has added another positive for US soccer this January transfer month following Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic announcement.
Celtic looks the perfect option for Weah to break out in a dynamic Celtic side that’s suited to his positional play. It’ll certainly be interesting to watch Weah and his contributions to US Soccer.
