Musonda loan switch to Scotland

Charly Musonda Jr has today joined Celtic on loan until the end of the 2018/19 season.

The attacking midfielder, a product of our Academy, has made seven appearances as part of the first-team squad this term, scoring on his full debut against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.

In his most recent game, the 21-year-old provided an excellent assist for Victor Moses’ goal in the 4-0 win at Brighton. That followed an eye-catching display in the Checkatrade Trophy, where Musonda netted a last-minute free-kick to beat Portsmouth, earning him a nomination for the competition’s Player of the Round.

Having recently signed a new contract until 2022, the Belgian Under-21 international will now continue his development with more regular first-team football north of the border.
