Celtic have announced the £2m capture of defensive midfielder Ismaila Soro from Bnei Yehuda via the club’s Twitter feed.

Soro signs as a direct replacement for Eboue Kouassi who has departed for Genk on an initial six month loan with a view to a permanent deal if he performs well at the Belgian side.

Celtic fans will be excited at the prospect of seeing Soro in the Parkhead club’s engine room and whether or not Neil Lennon has found the heir to Scott Brown’s throne.

Lennon has been experimenting with different formations following the winter break and there is every possibility that Callum McGregor will be moved forward into a more advanced position to allow him greater attacking freedom.

Will Ismaila Soro make an impact in the second half of the season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hoops fans took to Twitter in response to the announcement intrigued at what the Ivorian will bring to the dominant force in Scotland.

Soro will be looking to hit the ground running and having played as recently as last week, match fitness won’t be an issue, Celtic fans could be in for a short wait with fixtures coming thick and fast over the coming weeks as they wait for a first sighting of their latest recruit.
