Timothy Weah, the 18-year-old USA forward with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), has joined Scottish champions Celtic on a six-month loan deal, the Glasgow club announced on Monday.

PSG and US men's national team winger Tim Weah will spend the rest of the season on loan at Celtic, the Scottish club confirmed on Monday.

"He indicated he would like to get more experience in although it's a balancing act, isn't it, between bringing in young players he can develop and bringing in experienced players that know what it takes to win a championship".

Rodgers said Celtic were "not thinking about" selling the central defender and there was "no update" on the captain's position, however he said "some of our players will definitely go out on loan".

"I just want to kick on now and get as many games as I can under my belt and show what I'm capable of", he said.

NYC Care will launch in the summer of 2019 and cost at least $100 million annually at full scale. The plan would cover everyone regardless of ability pay or immigration status.

Weah, the son of former AS Monaco and AC Milan player and current Liberia president George, has scored twice in six games for PSG and netted once in eight internationals.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing all the fans at the home game at Celtic Park". I'm so excited to be here. Players who have dealt with any types of issues, it's admitting that responsibility and knowing where you are at, really.

Weah said he "received "a lot of offers" to go on loan this winter, but Celtic was the one that stood out for him". I feel like being at Celtic now is the place for me.

The 18-year-old will join up with his new team-mates at their warm weather training camp in Dubai, and could make his debut in their Scottish Cup tie with Airdrieonians on January 19. "He's hungry too", added Rodgers, who has won the title twice with Celtic.

"The market is very hard for Scotland because the players are always moving, you look at the changes in our squad that happened particularly over the summer, it's a new squad, lots of new players".
