JOHNNY KENNY has become Celtic’s fourth signing of the January window after agreeing a £125,000 move and a five-year deal from Sligo Rovers.

The highly-rated 18-year-old striker netted 11 goals in his first season with the League of Ireland side to attract the attention of the Hoops talent scouts.

Hibs, too, were in the chase for the hitkid, but once the Parkhead outfit declared their interest there was only one destination for Kenny, who will kick off his new career in the club’s B team set-up, according to a report on the Celtic website.

CONFIRMED…Johnny Kenny kitted out and ready to go.
The original deal includes several add-ons and appearance fees. The teenager arrives five months after fellow-countryman Liam Scales who joined the Ange Postecoglou revolution in a £600,000 switch from Shamrock Rovers.
Kenny is now added to the triple J-League arrivals, Daizen Maeda, Yosuke Ideguchi and Reo Hatate, as the Greek-Australian continues to strengthen his squad.
