Chris Sutton has raved about the quality of Celtic’s teenager Jeremie Frimpong.
The 19-year-old defender was with Manchester City’s academy last year, but made the move to Parkhead in the summer and is a part of the Bhoys squad.
He’s managed to force his way into Neil Lennon’s side on a more regular basis recently and has played 11 first-team games across all competitions this season.
The Dutch right-back is a speed machine that has offered great energy out wide and he’s started five of the last six league games.
Pundit Sutton is a big admirer of Frimpong and believes he’s a bargain signing for the Scottish giants.
“Jeremie Frimpong has been absolutely sensational since he was snapped up from Manchester City,” Sutton wrote in the Daily Record.
“Although it could rise in the future, the fee of £350,000 for that lad now appears laughable. Frimpong has been dynamite. His energy, enthusiasm and quality have been breathtaking at times and that’s a terrific market for Celtic. Those cut-price cross-border jobs.”
Frimpong appears to be growing in confidence every week in a Celtic shirt and it looks like he’s the long-term solution at right-back for the club.
Despite his lack of experience, the young defender has started to make the full-back position his own already and offers them a real presence.
He can be a dangerous threat when he pushes forward into attack and has two league goals so far this season, but he’s a tenacious tackler too and will only get better.
