George Weah's son signs professional contract with PSG


Timothy Weah, the son of former Ballon d'Or winner George, has signed his first professional contract and will remain with French giants Paris Saint-Germain until 2020.

The 17-year-old joined the Ligue 1 youth squad in 2014 and starred last season, scoring a hat-trick against Ludogorets in the UEFA Youth League.

And now, Weah has secured his maiden professional contract after previously playing for PSG's Under-15 and Under-19 sides.

"I'm very proud to continue my adventure with Paris Saint-Germain by signing this professional contract," he told PSG's official website. 

"I'm with a great club and I can't wait continue making progress towards my goal of one day playing for the senior team."

Timothy's father and former Liberia international, George, represented PSG between 1992 and 1995 – going on to win the Ballon d'Or shortly after moving to AC Milan.

Timothy, who was born in New York in 2000, elected to represent the country of his birth and has featured as a US youth international.

He was part of the US side that finished runners-up to Mexico in May's CONCACAF Under-17 Championship in Panama.
