Does this Olivier Ntcham signing picture hint at who might sign the next contract extensions at Celtic?

The French midfielder was yesterday paraded by the club after extending his deal until 2022.

That’s big news for the Hoops considering how good Ntcham has been for them since moving from Manchester City and the recent interest other clubs have had in him.

Now supporters can relax knowing that Ntcham is at Celtic Park for a considerable amount of time unless someone comes in with a bid that the club have to take.

And they’ll hope that others can follow the Frenchman in signing new extensions.

Maybe Ryan Christie and Dedryck Boyata are the next two to be confirmed?

We already know that Christie is in talks with the club about signing a new contract, with Brendan Rodgers and the player himself confirming as much earlier this week.

That would be another significant boost considering the young Scottish midfielder has emerged as one of the top talents in Rodgers’ squad over recent weeks.

But what about Boyata? Fans were critical of him in the summer when he appeared unwilling to play for the team during crucial Champions League qualifiers due to interest in him from a number of clubs.

His contract expires at the end of this season and the suggestion has been that he’ll move on for free when that deal ends.

Yet maybe there’s hope from Celtic that Boyata will sign a new deal and extend his stay in Glasgow?

One supporter on Twitter made a keen observation about the strips hanging behind Ntcham in a picture as Celtic announced his contract yesterday.

As you can see below, Ntcham’s shirt is there – and he now has a new contract. But that strip was joined by Tom Rogic’s number 18 jersey – who signed a new five-year deal at the club back in May.

Christie looks certain to be the next to sign a new deal – and his strip is there.

So is Boyata’s. Maybe that’s Celtic’s way of getting fans excited?

What do you think? Could Boyata sign a new deal?
