Two multiplied by ten plus one.........Romeo Dunn.

Of course there’s no reason why that memorable line from the So Solid Crew’s greatest MC should be in this article other than to reference the age of the WONDERKID that Celtic are set to sign from Chelsea on an eighteen month groan, sorry, loan later today.

The Belgian was an unused sub against Newcastle in Chelsea’s 3-0 FA Cup win at Stamford Bridge yesterday and has already had his privacy invaded within seconds at Glasgow Airport, with many detectives confirming his plane did indeed land at our city’s international plane stop.

SNS have also confirmed it here.

The big question now is what now for Patrick Roberts ? Another on loan signing from a Premiership club, Roberts has found game time hard to come by this season, due to the form of James Forrest and unluckily picking up an injury at Fir Park earlier in the season , the signing of Musonda is going to add even more competition for a starting place for him when he’s back to full fitness. It’s good for Celtic to have so many options, but the player himself may feel that the game is a bogey and focus on next season sooner than the summer, with Man City unlikely to give him a game this season.

Musonda is set to go straight into the squad and I wouldn’t be surprised if he featured against Hearts tomorrow evening.
