Rabiu Ibrahim: Considered by Neil Lennon to be an 'intelligent footballer'
Celtic have confirmed the signing of attack-minded midfielder Rabiu Ibrahim subject to a work permit application.
The Nigerian, 20, will arrive at Parkhead on a three-and-a-half-year contract after impressing while on a recent trial.
And Neil Lennon is happy to have as good as captured former PSV Eindhoven playmaker Ibrahim during January.
The Celtic boss told his club's official website: "We have been very impressed by Rabiu. In my view he is a highly talented and exciting young player and someone who will be a tremendous addition to our squad.
"He is a playmaker, well balanced and a very intelligent footballer. We are really looking forward to him joining us."
