Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham looks set to return to Parkhead in the summer following his loan spell with Marseille, the Daily Record report.
That’s because the Ligue 1 side, who have the option to make Ntcham’s move permanent for £4.5m at the end of the season, are looking at midfield alternatives.
Reports from Turkey and France, cited by the Daily Record, claim that Marseille are looking at Gedson Fernandes and Angelo Fulgini, with both players possible replacements for the 25-year-old.
What should Celtic do with Ntcham this summer?
Transfer Tavern take
However, Ntcham has recently made it clear he wants to seal a permanent summer exit from Glasgow, regardless of what Marseille decide to do.
He’ll have 12 months remaining on his Celtic deal in the summer, so it doesn’t look likely he’ll be turning out in green and white next season, regardless of who is in the Parkhead dugout, so it’ll be interesting to see how much the club recieve for his services in the market, or indeed if Howe really pushes to keep him at the club.
