With the transfer window slamming shut this coming weekend, cash-rich clubs south of the border are well known for their propensity to splash a few quid last minute, and it seems Ntcham is in the Hammers’ crosshairs.
According to France’s Foot Mercato, the Hoops midfielder has been of interest to several clubs but David Moyes’s side have jumped to the front of the queue – and are now at the stage of ‘advanced negotiations’ for the 23-year-old.
Ntcham has been a regular starter under Neil Lennon this season, and is probably the club’s first-choice in the coveted ‘Number 10’ role, just ahead of Tom Rogic.
As you can probably imagine, the news of Ntcham being in demand has prompted a pretty strong reaction from Celtic fans on social media:
Do you think it’s time Celtic cashed-in on Ntcham, or should they keep him until the summer at least?
