Celtic flop Eboue Kouassi has joined Genk on a permanent deal after making just seven league starts in three years for the Scottish champions.

The midfielder was a £2.8million signing under Brendan Rodgers but has failed to make an impact since arriving at Celtic Park.

The 22-year-old moved to the Belgian side on loan in January and has convinced them to sign him on a four-year deal despite only making four appearances before the coronavirus crisis stopped the league.

Eboue Kouassi has ended his nightmare spell at Celtic to join Genk on a permanent deal

The 22-year-old was a signing under Brendan Rodgers in 2017 but failed to make an impact

The Ivorian midfielder only made 22 appearances for Celtic after joining from FK Krasnodar in a £3million deal in January 2017.   

A statement from the Belgian club read: ‘KRC Genk has activated the option to buy midfielder Eboue Kouassi, 22.

‘The Ivorian midfielder is taken outright from Celtic. Kouassi is now signed up until 2024.  

‘Due to a minor injury and the corona crisis, he has only played in four games so far, but Kouassi was in the starting XI for three games and completed the 90 minutes in the last two.

‘He was able to convince everyone at the club of his qualities.’
