Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard has set Scotland alight since his arrival from French giants Paris Saint-Germain and his form in Glasgow has attracted a lot of interest from other sides across the globe.
The Hoops have survived another window without the player leaving. There is now an update on his future, and it is a big positive for all associated with the club.
Will Odsonne Edouard stay at Celtic for the foreseeable?
According to Football Insider, Celtic are convinced Edouard will remain at the club. They believe they have until next summer regardless of whether he commits to the new deal being discussed, which means that the £40m-rated marksman should be staying for the rest of this season.
How much do Celtic need Odsonne Edouard?
Edouard has played 10 games in all competitions this season and scored six times, per Transfermarkt, so it would have been a big loss for Celtic if he left in the last transfer window. His form this season reflects what the Parkhead faithful have come to expect from the Frenchman. Edouard has played 136 times for the club, scoring 66 goals and assisting 32 more.
Therefore, it is reassuring to know that the Hoops will have him for at least the rest of this season, even in the face of interest from Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Newcastle.
Will Edouard stay at the club?
The Hoops are battling in the Europa League this season, as well as looking to make Scottish history and win ten Premiership titles in a row. They will need to keep their prize assets to fulfil that mission, so this news about Edouard is a boost.
It also shows that the 22-year-old is currently happy to help Celtic try and achieve history, and this mentality should definitely be a bonus for the club.
