Supporters of Celtic have recently reacted to a tweet confirming that Jeremie Frimpong has completed his move to Bayer Leverkusen.

On Wednesday evening, Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph shared a tweet claiming that the Dutchman had completed his move to the Bundesliga club.

According to his Twitter post, die Werkself sealed the arrival of the right-back from the Hoops for a fee of ‘more than £10m‘.

Joseph also shared that the Amsterdam-born 20-year-old had put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the German outfit.

After 18 games, Leverkusen currently occupy third in the Bundesliga table, having picked up 32 points, meaning they trail league leaders Bayern Munich by 10 points (per BBC).

Following Joseph’s tweet, lots of fans flocked to the post to air their thoughts on the transfer.

Back in the summer of 2019, the Bhoys paid just £342,000 to seal the Dutchman’s arrival from Manchester City (as per Transfermarkt).

During his time at Celtic Park, his market value has risen to £3.6m, which still falls some way below what Leverkusen reportedly paid for the youngster.

“Excellent business, the lack of end product or defensive sense was a hinderance. Plenty potential under a good coach tho, good luck to him”

Over the duration of the season so far, Frimpong made 22 appearances for the Hoops in the Premiership, in which he bagged one goal and provided two assists (per WhoScored).

His performances were fairly decent over the outings as he earned a 6.86/10 average rating, however, that only made him the 19th-best performer in the squad.
