Celtic: Edouard still expected to leave despite contrary reports

Celtic: Edouard still expected to leave despite contrary reports - Celtic

Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is still expected to leave Parkhead despite his move to Leicester City falling through.

The Lowdown: Rumours Edouard could stay at Celtic

Fabrizio Romano revealed in the week that the Foxes have moved on to RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka after failing to agree on a fee with the Hoops for Edouard.

The 23-year-old told friends he would be heading to the King Power to reunite with Brendan Rodgers, however, it seems as if that will not be the case after all.

Reports from the Daily Mail then claimed the French forward is now considering running down his Hoops contract with a view of leaving as a free agent next summer.

The Latest: Source shares update

Football Insider shared a contrary story on Edouard on Saturday morning, claiming West Ham are weighing up a move for the striker.

A source with knowledge informed the site that, despite rumours of Edouard remaining in Glasgow, he is still expected to depart the club ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

The Verdict: Hoops must get a respectable fee

If that is the case and Edouard does indeed move on, it is pivotal Celtic still receive a respectable fee for his services – losing such a talented player for nothing could turn out to be a disaster.

Celtic have to hand over 50% of any profit they make on Edouard to Paris Saint-Germain, so every penny over £9m matters, and they will hope the interest from West Ham is joined by more clubs, perhaps prompting a bidding war.

Charlie Wyke appears to be an attacking cut-price target for the Hoops, but should Edouard move, the Hoops may have to use some of the money they receive to bring in another forward for Ange Postecoglou.
