Kouassi Eboue is yet to be confirmed as a Celtic player officially, but he has already joined Brendan Rodgers’ squad in Dubai after a £2.8m deal was agreed to bring him to the club.

The only outstanding bit of paperwork is his work permit, which is expected to be granted by the Home Office in the coming days.

Rodgers has always liked working with young players and has helped some of them develop into stars, take Raheem Sterling as the most obvious example.

So, we know that Eboue is a young midfielder, but there are a lot of fans, who, understandably, don’t know too much else about him.

To help everybody get to know Celtic’s newest player and learn more about him, we’ve put together a fact file looking at his life and career so far.

Have a look through, take in some of the facts and use them to impress your family and friends when a discussion about the teenager crops up in the near future!
