Celtic: Olivier Ntcham ‘will not return’ to Parkhead

Celtic: Olivier Ntcham ‘will not return’ to Parkhead - Celtic

Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham ‘will not return’ to Parkhead, according to Foot Mercato, cited by Sport Witness.

The Lowdown: Ntcham into the final 12 months of Hoops deal

Ntcham is still a Hoops player after Marseille decided against signing the Frenchman permanently. He made just six appearances after joining the Ligue 1 club for the second half of the season and still has 12 months remaining on his Parkhead deal.

There were reports that Celtic were ready to terminate the final year of the 25-year-old’s contract, but that has yet to come to fruition.

The Latest: French reports

Foot Mercato claimed [via Sport Witness] that Ntcham ‘will not return’ to Celtic Park this season under Ange Postecoglou.

The midfielder is ‘seriously liked’ by two unnamed clubs in Ligue 1, so it seems as if a permanent return to his native country could well materialise after all.

Should Celtic have sold Ntcham last summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Verdict: Can McKay get anything for Ntcham?

Neil Lennon described Ntcham as ‘unbelievable’ towards the end of 2019, and although he has had his struggles on the pitch over the last 18 months, new Celtic CEO Dominic McKay may now be able to bring in some cash when it comes to the midfielder.

With two unnamed clubs keen on the 25-year-old, you’d like to think the Hoops could bring in a fee close to his £2.7m Transfermarkt valuation.

After all, Celtic were demanding a fee in the region of £7m for the midfielder just six months ago, and should they choose not terminate his deal, they could end up bringing in some funds for Postecoglou by selling Ntcham and funding potential new additions.
