The New York Red Bulls completed the transfer Friday for Celtic FC winger Cameron Harper.

The 19-year-old California native signed a three-year deal with a fourth-year option, the MLS club announced.

"We are delighted to welcome Cameron to our club," Red Bulls head of sport Kevin Thelwell said in a release. "Cameron is a sharp young talent who has been rising through the ranks of Celtic and the U.S. Youth National Teams. Cameron possesses mental, physical, and technical attributes that make us believe he has a bright future, and we're pleased that he has decided to take the next step in his career with us."

He signed with Scotland's Celtic FC in September 2018 and made his senior team debut on Jan. 11, 2021 in a 1-1 draw with Hibernian FC.

"I'm very happy to have Cameron join our team," Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber said. "Cameron is an exciting attacking player, with athleticism and strong technical ability. He sees the field very well and can create with the ball in tight spaces. As a staff we are excited to work with Cameron and help him continue to develop his game."

Harper has also made three appearances for the U.S. men's national team's Under-20 side, registering one goal and one assist.
