Republic of Ireland Under-19 international Jonathan Afolabi has joined Dunfermline Athletic on loan from Celtic for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old joined the Scottish Premiership leaders in August 2019 but hasn't broken into the first-team set-up, so a temporary move to East End Park has been agreed.

Afolabi came through the youth system at Southampton before heading north to Scotland and agreeing a three-year-deal with the Hoops.

He came to prominence when he starred up front in Ireland's run to the semi-finals in the recent Under-19 European Championship, where he was a free agent after being released by the Saints earlier in the summer.

Dunfermline currently sit in fifth place in the Scottish Championship.
