CELTIC have completed the signing of a trio of top prospects to ward off interest from England.
Jack Aitchison, who made history when he scored with his first-ever touch for the Hoops in their 7-0 win over Motherwell on Flag Day last season, has already agreed a three-year extension.
Defenders Daniel Church and Stephen Welsh have joined the striker in signing three-year deals at Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Manchester United were linked with Aitchison and full-back Church, but received no encouragement.
All three players are regulars in the Under-17 team which won the Scottish title and beat Rangers 4-0 in the Glasgow Cup Final.
Welsh and Church are currently in Hungary playing in the Telki Cup for Scotland’s Under-17 squad.
