Karamoko Dembele, the 14-year-old Celtic sensation, has signed a new youth contract with the Scottish champions.
The 14-year-old is a highly-prized talent and has been watched by scouts from a number of leading clubs from England and across Europe.
Celtic’s head of youth Chris McCart, said: “We are delighted that Karamoko and his parents have decided to continue his development at Celtic.
“He is a talented young player and someone who will continue to receive the very best of care and support from everyone at the club, as he has for some time.
“Clearly there has been considerable publicity surrounding Karamoko, but our focus will be solely on Karamoko’s needs as a young player and we will commit ourselves, as we do with all our players, to giving him the very best opportunity to flourish in football and all other aspects of life.”
