Celtic: Vakoun Bayo set for Parkhead return

Celtic: Vakoun Bayo set for Parkhead return - Celtic

Celtic striker Vakoun Bayo looks set to return to Parkhead under new boss Ange Postecoglou, according to the Daily Record.

The Lowdown: Bayo’s 2020/21 season

The 24-year-old spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan at French side Toulouse.

Bayo, who Chris Sutton described as ‘powerful’ back in 2019, scored 13 goals and registered four assists in 36 appearances in all competitions, with 11 of those coming since the turn of the year.

Unfortunately for the Ivory Coast international, he failed to help Toulouse gain promotion to Ligue 1, and it seems that could be costly in regards to the forward making his stay in France permanent.

The Latest: Bayo’s return

According to a report from the Daily Record, Bayo is in line to return to Parkhead ahead of pre-season.

Toulouse had the option to turn Bayo’s loan move into permanent transfer this summer, but it appears as if they will not decide to do that. They announced that Brecht Dejaegere had made his temporary stay a long-term one, but there was no mention of Bayo.

He is expected to return to Scotland as a result and could be handed a chance by Postecoglou, with pre-season for the Hoops beginning on Thursday.

The Verdict: A welcome boost for Postecoglou?

New Celtic boss Postecoglou could well be short of attacking options over the coming months, so a return to Scotland for Bayo could be good news for the 55-year-old.

Leigh Griffiths’ future appears to be up in the air, while Odsonne Edouard has reportedly told friends that he will be joining Leicester City.

Celtic also recently missed out on long-term target Kyle Joseph, so having Bayo back at Lennoxtown next week will give Postecoglou another attacking option as he gears up for a busy few months ahead of the crucial 2021/22 season.
