Done Deal: Celtic agrees deal to sign 16-year-old striker for 3-years contract

readceltic: Celtic have agreed a deal to sign 16-year-old striker Stefan Nikolic, according to a report from The World Game in Australia.

The youngster has seemingly impressed Celtic’s scouts with his performances in the Western Sydney Wanderers academy set up and as such, the Scottish champions have agreed to sign him on a three-year deal.

Celtic will have to pay a compensatory fee to Wanderers for the youngster, who will fly to Glasgow as soon as the current travel restrictions are lifted and it’s safe for him to make the long trip from Down Under.

This deal was reportedly in the works for some time but negotiations were delayed due to the current outbreak. However, it looks like any issues have now been resolved and the player will officially become a Celt.

Nikolic, who shares the same management company as current Hoops star Tom Rogic, has yet to play in the A-League, but his goalscoring record at youth levels has been outstanding as highlighted by the 36 goals he scored in just 25 academy games in his debut campaign.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
Celtic’s scouting network reaches far and wide and it’s great to see the club having eyes on the best youngsters on the other side of the world.

Aged 16, it’s almost impossible to know if Nikolic will be a success in Scotland but his goalscoring record at youth levels is encouraging.

Celtic have some exciting youngsters on their books already and Hoops fans who enjoy keeping tabs on the club’s youth set up could soon have another starlight to keep an eye on.
