FORMER Celtic player Jonathan Afolabi has secured his future.

The 22-year-old has joined Bohemians in Ireland.

The striker joined the Hoops in 2019 from Southampton.

He never made the grade in the first team and was farmed out on loan to several lower league sides, including Dundee, Dunfermline, Ayr and Airdrie.

Afolabi was today unveiled as a permanent signing for the League of Ireland side.

A club statement reads: "Bohemians are delighted to confirm the signing of Jonathan Afolabi from Celtic.

"The striker, 22, joins having had successful loan spells in Scotland in recent seasons with Dunfermline Athletic, Dundee, Ayr United and Airdrieonians."

Keith Long, the club's manager, commented: “I would like to welcome Jonathan to the club.

"We felt it was important to bring another attacking option to add to what we have already in Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe and Ethon Varian.

“At 22, Jonathan has good experience in Scotland from his loan periods from Celtic in addition to representing Ireland all the way up to U21 level.

“At 6ft 2in, he is a big powerful striker who can hopefully make a big impact at the club.”
