CELTIC have announced that midfielder Joe Thomson has moved to Dumbarton on loan until January.

The 19-year-old has only made one senior appearance for the Hoops, but is a regular performer for the club's youth sides as well as being a Scotland Under-19 international.

The Scottish champions today confirmed that the Paisley-born central midfielder will move to the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium until January on a temporary deal. 

He joined the Bhoys' Development squad in 2013 and signed a new two-year deal at Celtic Park in June.

The midfielder starred for Celtic's Under-20s in the resounding 5-1 win against Annan Athletic earlier this week.
