CELTIC loan flop Charly Musonda has sealed a move to Spanish second-tier club Levante.

The much-hyped Belgian midfielder was brought to Parkhead by Brendan Rodgers from Chelsea on an 18-month temporary transfer in January 2018.

The move was heralded as a signing coup for the Hoops boss with Musonda, then an exciting 21-year-old prospect, on the wanted list of a host of interested clubs, headed by Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Musonda joined at the turn of the year, but, apart from a praiseworthy cameo appearance when he set up Callum McGregor for the only goal against Zenit St Petersburg a month after his arrival, he failed to impress and made only three starts in five outings.

He was returned to the Stamford Bridge with 12 months of the contract still to run.

The London club freed him in June this year with Musonda making a mere seven outings since progressing through the youth ranks, having joined the club in 2012, according to the Scottish Sun.

Celtic were one of three clubs who took the attacking middle-of-the park performer on loan with the Brussels-born player also having spells at La Liga outfit Real Betis and Dutch side Vitesse.

Musonda spent the last two seasons playing for the Chelsea Under-23 side before being released by boss Thomas Tuchel.

Earlier this summer, he had a trial at Belgian club Zule Waregrem, but went AWOL before signing his contract offer.

Now, at 25, Musonda will attempt to kick-start his career at Levante.
