Gent have announced the signing of Vakoun Bayo on a four year contract.

After falling out of favour at Celtic and spending last season on loan with Toulouse in the French Second Division the move marks a step up for the 24-year-old.

Celtic signed Bayo in January 2019 alongside Marian Shved, and Manny Perez with only winger Shved left on the pay-roll.

Last night Gent coach Tom Matthys told the club website:

Vakoun is a fast and agile striker who is very strong offensively. He is a player who will offer our coach many opportunities up front.

According to the report in The Sun Celtic have collected a fee of £1.4m which would be a very healthy outcome for a player in the final year of his contract.

Although Bayo seemed miles away from being involved in the Celtic first team it does leave the club in a very vulnerable position over Edouard.

With removed from the first team squad and are the only strikers available to with just 10 days to go until Celtic face Midtjylland in a Champions League qualifier.

Mikey Johnston or Ryan Christie could be pushed into action as an emergency striker but that move hasn’t been overly successful in the past.
