Brendan Rodgers first signing for Celtic will definitely get fans excited

It makes a change from signing Carlton Cole.

Brendan Rodgers first signing as Celtic manager is bound to get fans of the Glasgow club excited.

Moussa Dembele (not that one) is set to join on a free-transfer from Fulham, with Celtic required to pay £500,000 in compensation.

The 19-year-old striker was close to signing for Spurs in January, and has been monitored by a number of top clubs.

Dembele joined the London club from Paris Saint-Germain in 2012 and scored 17 goals in 46 games in the Championship last season.

The Frenchman is Rodgers first signing since becoming Celtic manager. Carlton Cole, Colin Kazim-Richards and Anthony Stokes left the club in the close season.
