Celtic yet to decide Edouard future, “Rodgers is a big fan”

Odsonne Edouard - Football Hitz

Celtic are stalled over whether to sign centre-forward Odsonne Edouard on a permanent deal in the summer, according to the Daily Record.

The tabloid claims that the Scottish champions are yet to decide whether or not they want to turn the 20-year-old’s stay at the Celtic Park into a permanent one or not.

Football Weeks’ sources understands that Celtic will have first refusal on Edouard if they stump up £7million for him when he returns to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer from his loan with Celtic.

The report adds that Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers is a big admirer of the young Frenchman, but his side will wait until later in the season before submitting an offer for the PSG star.

The striker is currently behind teammate Moussa Dembele in the pecking order at Parkhead, but did come off the bench at the weekend to score the winning for Celtic against Rangers in the clash that ended 3-2.

The 20-year-old has been playing the third-choice striker behind Dembele and Leigh Griffiths for the whole of the season, but the Kourou, French Guiana born has certainly still left his mark.

Odsonne has eight goals in just 23 appearances across all competition for Celtic this season and is an important part of Rodgers’ plans.

He is only going to improve as a 20-year-old and could definitely be wroth the gamble at £7million to snap him up in the summer.

This potential move is certainly in the balance as Edouard would be willing to stay in Scotland in the long-term, but he will come at a big price to sign on a regular basis from French giants PSG.
