More to come after Eboue

Last updated : 10 January 2017 By Celtic Mad

Brendan Rodgers insists that Africa is an untapped market, after bringing in Kouassi Eboue.

Celtic have signed the Ivory Coast midfielder for £2.8 million from Russian side FC Krasnodar and are now awaiting his work permit being rubber-stamped.

“It’s always been a market where you find players who are hungry," said Rodgers. "Kolo Toure is the perfect example.

“You only need to look a Kolo’s academy in the Ivory Coast to see the likes of Gervinho, Kolo and Yaya Toure coming through. Big talents.

“Ghana, Mali, Ivory Coast, Senegal. In western Africa, they have big talent.”
