Jonathan Afolabi has joined Dundee on loan from Celtic. 

The move to Dens Park is the Republic of Ireland U21 striker's second loan move away from Parkhead.

Afolabi scored twice in six games for Dunfermline prior to COVID-19 ending the 2019-20 Scottish season prematurely.

The 20-year old joined Celtic from Southampton in August of 2019, but is yet to make a senior appearance for Neil Lennon's side.

He's Dundee's second loan signing of the week, following the arrival of Jamaican forward Nicholas Hamilton from Canadian outfit York9.

Afolabi trained with his new teammates on Monday. Dundee open their season with a pair of Scottish League Cup group games against Forfar Athletic and Brora Rangers.

James McPake's side will ply their trade in the Scottish Championship this term.
