Odsonne Edouard Says Staying at Celtic is His Best Option

Odsonne Edouard insists staying at Celtic is the best option for his career.

The French striker has been on loan at the club since the start of the season, joining on a year-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain.

It was revealed early on that there’s a purchase clause for Celtic in that deal and that’s looked more and more likely to be activated as he’s impressed throughout this campaign.

Edouard has 11 goals in all competitions for the Hoops, including three strikes in two fixtures against Rangers.

And the supporters certainly want to see him remain at the club permanently beyond the summer.

So they’ll be delighted to read his comments about his future and how he sees Celtic as the best option.

Speaking to L’Equipe this week, per journalist Robin Bairner, Edouard said:

So that sounds like Edouard definitely wants to stay a Celtic player.

But will they be able to do a deal with PSG? Reports say the clause is worth £7million, but Rodgers has denied that figure.

At the moment, Edouard’s final appearance for Celtic could be in the Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen as an injury picked up last weekend against Hearts means he should miss the final Premiership game of the season against Aberdeen this Sunday.
