Man City included several clauses in Jeremie Frimpong sale to Celtic

Manchester City included several clauses in their sale of Jeremie Frimpong to Celtic.

The Manchester Evening News says the 18-year-old secured a permanent move to the SPL champions on Monday after spending half of his life with the Blues in their academy.

Frimpong impressed last season as the Under-18s made it to the FA Youth Cup final and the Under-21s reached the quarter-finals of the Checkatrade Trophy but interest from Neil Lennon proved too much for him to turn down.

Celtic have paid an initial £350,000 for Frimpong and there are also up to £650,000 in potential payments which would take the total sum up to £1m. City will also receive 30 per cent of any fee should Celtic sell the youngster in future, but there is no buyback clause in the deal.
