Armstrong Ok-Flex is apparently a transfer target for Crystal Palace.

Celtic signed the winger on a cross border deal in the summer of 2019 but other than twice being included as a substitute without getting on his first team exposure has been limited.

There were high hopes for the former Arsenal kid when he moved to Celtic but after a couple of incidents involving Social Media it appears that his Celtic career is over.

A return to London at some stage next year seems inevitable with All Nigeria Soccer reporting:

Allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report that Crystal Palace are mulling over a second offer for the talented youngster after their first bid was rejected by the Scottish Premiership champions before the close of the summer transfer window as it did not match their valuation of the 18-year-old.

Okoflex has entered the final six months of his contract with Celtic and is able to start contract talks with interested foreign clubs as from next month if his current deal is not extended but a compensation has to be agreed.

With his Celtic contract up next summer it seems like a choice of the club over whether he is sold in January or leaves as a free agent in the summer.

During the 2019/18 season there was a 17 match Reserve League but last season and this Celtic have been arranging friendly matches to go alongside Glasgow up ties to push players on.

A number of players have been signed in similar circumstances over the last few seasons with Jeremie Frimpong the only one to have made it through to the first team.
