CELTIC B team skipper Ewan Otoo has agreed a loan move to Dunfermline for the remainder of the season.

The 20-year-old Hoops versatile defender has joined the Fifers to help their bid for the League One title and promotion to the Championship, as The Courier reported.

Otoo, who can play centre-half or left-back, is seen as one for the future by the Parkhead bosses and has already attracted attention from elsewhere with Leeds United and Aston Villa apparently showing interest.

He spent time on loan at Clyde in season 2020/21 and has also featured for Scotland at youth level while also qualifying for Ghana.

SCREEN GEM…Ewan Otoo is interviewed by Celtic TV.

Ange Postecoglou took the opportunity to have a look at the impressive youngster in his first game as Celtic gaffer in July 2021 when he fielded him in an entirely different line-up in the closed-doors friendly against Sheffield Wednesday in Newport.

The new boss watched his side win 3-1 with goals from Albian Ajeti, Owen Moffat, now with Blackpool, and Odsonne Edouard, who joined Crystal Palace the following month.

Otoo was pushed into a defensive midfield berth against the Hillsborough club alongside Luca Connell and Scott Robertson who are now playing for Barnsley and Fleetwood Town respectively.

Jonathan Afolabi also got 45 minutes that day, but the Republic of Ireland youth striker is now with Bohemians. Coincidentally, the youngster also had a temporary spell at East End Park.

Otoo is sanding by to make his debut at Airdrie tomorrow afternoon.
