New signing Timothy Weah is eager to get going at Lille and wants to emulate some of the club’s former stars.

The 19-year-old has penned a five-year deal with Les Dogues, ending a five-year association with Paris Saint-Germain that began in the youth team.

The striker made only six appearances for the PSG first team and spent the second half of last season on loan with Scottish giants Celtic.

He scored four goals from 17 appearances in all competitions for the Hoops but has now completed a move to Lille, with the United States international delighted to be at such a historic club.

‘I’ve known this club since I’ve played in France and I want to discover its history,’ he said.

‘Great players have come here like Aubameyang, Hazard and (Nicolas) Pepe, and I am very happy to be here.

I know that if I work well, I’ll improve.

‘Now the work begins and I cannot wait to play in front of the fans.

For me, LOSC was the best club – they were second in the championship and qualified for the Champions League.’
