18-year-old son of the great George Weah made the announcement in an Instagram post in French on Christmas Day. The club to which he's believed to be headed is Scottish champion Celtic, though
French club Rennes has also been tipped to be in the hunt.
"First of all," Weah said, "I would like to thank the fans for their constant support, as well as the coaching staff and my
teammates, for keeping me in good spirits and making me feel like I will always be a part of this family.
"These past few months were great even though I did not play much, I was always
grateful for the opportunities I had at the beginning of the season because it opened many doors for me this winter."
Weah starred for PSG in preseason, scored in 4-0 Trophée des
Champions win over Monaco, scored off the bench in its Ligue 1 opener and started in its second game of the season. But with the return of its World Cup stars and last-minute signing of Cameroonian
forward Eric Choupo-Moting, there was no room for Weah in the first team, and he has not dressed since. His only three club games were with the PSG second team in the amateur fourth-tier
He debuted for the USA in March, shortly after making
his first appearance for PSG, and started six international games in 2018, tied for fourth on the team. He scored in the 3-0 win over Bolivia and had a assist in the 4-2 loss to Colombia. He is
eligible to play for the USA in the 2019 U-20 World Cup in Poland.
PSG has been a pipeline for young French-bred strikers headed to Celtic. French international Moussa Dembele, who
spent part of his youth in the PSG academy, starred at Celtic before moving to Lyon in August. Odsonne Edouard, 20, joined Celtic on loan last season before moving on a permanent transfer in
June. Another young Frenchman, Olivier Ntcham, has been at Celtic since 2017.
The possibility of adding Weah in January has attracted the interest of a
host of clubs across Europe, including Amiens, Strasbourg and Rennes in France. Rennes, whose president Olivier Letang was at PSG when Weah signed his first pro contract, is particularly
interested in signing Weah.
