"It feels amazing to have joined Celtic. What a massive club to be part of," he told the club's website.
 
"I'm just lucky to have been picked and I'm grateful for everything. I'm just happy to be here and I just want to get on the pitch and show the fans everything that I've got.
 
"I'm looking forward to training with my new team-mates and getting to know them. They've got more experience than me, so I'm hoping they'll be able to help me as a player.
 
"I started going on YouTube to watch Celtic, and when they were on TV, I watched the games. I watched Sunday's match against Rangers. What a game! Celtic were brilliant and deserved to win.
 
"Now I can't wait to play at Celtic Park in front of the fans. Hopefully when I get on the pitch and do something good, I'll hear the noise for me."
 
Frimpong is eligible to play for either Ghana or Netherlands in future
