Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham looks set to return to the club this summer following his loan spell with Marseille.
Marseille could have forked out around £4.5m to sign the Frenchman on a full-time basis, but it seems as if that won’t be the case.
Ntcham’s woeful form
Ntcham hasn’t exactly had the most memorable of loan spells in his native country.
Transfer Tavern take
The news may come as a blow to the Hoops, who could also receive cash due to former striker Moussa Dembele this summer. They may have been hoping to receive £4.5m for Ntcham as well ahead of a Parkhead rebuild.
What should Celtic do with Ntcham this summer?
Ntcham is valued at £3.15m by Transfermarkt and will have just 12 months remaining on his Parkhead deal in the summer.
Celtic may then have a big decision on their hands ahead of the 2021/22 campaign – do they look to offload Ntcham in a cut-price deal, or include him in their plans for the new season?
