Celtic: No guarantees Ntcham will make permanent Marseille move

Celtic: No guarantees Ntcham will make permanent Marseille move - Celtic

Olivier Ntcham has had an eventful few months after finally sealing a Celtic Park exit in the winter window.

The French midfielder joined Ligue 1 side Marseille on deadline day in the winter window, a move which led to Andre Villas-Boas’ exit as manager.

Ntcham’s woeful Marseille form

Ntcham has made five appearances in total in recent months for his new club, three of which have been starts. However, in those three matches, the 25-year-old has been subbed at half-time.

French outlet Foot Mercato, cited by Sports Witness, has now provided an update on the player’s future.

Marseille have the option to make Ntcham’s loan permanent in a deal in the region of €5-6m, but Foot Mercato claim ‘nothing guarantees’ the clause will be triggered in the summer.

Transfer Tavern take

It’s safe to say Ntcham hasn’t made the impact Marseille were hoping for, which could result in a Parkhead return ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Out of the 31 members to feature for the Ligue 1 side this season, statistically, Ntcham has been the fifth-worst rated player, as per WhoScored.

Ntcham’s Hoops deal will still have 12 months left to run in the summer, so Celtic may have to make a serious decision on the Frenchman in the upcoming window, should Marseille refuse to trigger their permanent clause.
