United States international striker Juan Agudelo has started a training stint with Celtic.

The 19-year-old, capped 16 times by his country already in his career, joined up with Neil Lennon's side for the first time on Friday at Lennoxtown.

Agudelo is currently with MLS side Chivas USA, having previously played with New York Red Bulls.

Scorer of ten club career goals from 62 appearances, the Colombian-born player has also netted twice for his country, on target against South Africa and Argentina.

Agudelo, who has also had training stints at Liverpool and Stuttgart in recent years, came off the bench to help USA draw 2-2 with Russia in midweek.

He played alongside Thierry Henry at New York, netting six times in 27 matches, before his career appeared to stall leading to his move to Chivas earlier this year.

However he scored three goals in 20 MLS appearance as the club finished the season ninth in the Western Conference, missing out on the post-season play-offs.
