W Connection and Soca Warriors teenaged striker Shahdon Winchester is setting himself to resume talks in January over a possible move to Scottish club, Celtic.
The 18-year-old Winchester, who is on a two-week trial at the Glasgow club, fired himself into contention for a move to Celtic after blasting two goals in a bounce match against a Motherwell XI at Lennoxtown last week.
Winchester, who had already impressed manager Neil Lennon in training with the first team, had an outstanding match in Celtic’s Development team 6–1 win.
Now talks are expected to begin to tee up a move to Parkhead when the transfer window re-opens in January for the teenager, who has been dubbed the new Dwight Yorke by Soca Warriors coach Russell Latapy.
On Sunday, Lennon confirmed that Winchester could join the Glasgow club.
Lennon said that T&T striker had impressed on trial with Celtic’s youths. Winchester, who has forced his way into the senior T&T national team, has impressed the staff at Celtic Park.
“We’ve had good reports about him and he’s broken into the international team now,” said Lennon. “He’s trained with the young lads down at Barrowfield and the reports were good on him and he will come up and join us this week.”
