Scottish giants Celtic take Ghanaian 'Messi' Acheampong on trial

Published on: 24 November 2012

Ghana's hugely-talented midfielder Frank 'Messi' Acheampong is on a verge of a big move to Europe as he has arrived in Scotland on trial with Celtic.

Acheampong, who is seen by many as the most talented player out of Ghana since Abedi Pele, is on trial with Celtic, the club's manager Neil Lennon has confirmed.

The 19-year-old, who has one cap to date for his country, arrived at Lennoxtown on Friday to try his luck with the SPL side.

Acheampong is currently with Thai Premier League side Buriram United, having joined from Berekum Chelsea in his homeland in 2011.

Ghanaians were hugely disappointed when the talented player moved to Thailand when several clubs in Europe where chasing him.

But he is now on the verge of making the fans happy by playing against the best in Europe, a move that is expected to put his career on good footing.

His first appearance for Ghana in a friendly draw with China in August this year, playing 60 minutes before being substituted.
