SPL giants Celtic have delved back into the Scandinavian market to hand a trial to Norwegian starlet Riki Alba.

The 16-year-old striker, who currently plays for Valerenga, is set to link up with the Glasgow club this week.

Alba admitted he cannot wait to spend a week in Scotland as he looks to impress Bhoys boss Neil Lennon.

He said: "First of all I look forward to an exciting experience.

"I've been waiting for this opportunity for a very long time and it's something I've dreamed about since I was six years old.

"I want to learn as much as possible from the trial."

The Bhoys recently agreed to sign Sweden full-back Mikael Lustig from Norwegian club Rosenborg in January.
