Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has changed his agent which could be a significant move as he decides where his future lies.
Edouard making moves
The 22-year-old has been influential for the Bhoys since his move to Glasgow and has been a key figure, helping his team win their last three Scottish Premiership titles.

Having been linked with a move away from Celtic on multiple occasions, Football Insider revealed that Edouard is now being represented by London-based sports agency Stellar Group, the agency who represent big-name clients such as Jack Grealish and Gareth Bale.
He was previously represented by a small firm in France and they managed to help him secure the move to Parkhead in 2017, initially on loan from Paris Saint Germain. Since then, Edouard has gone on to score 72 goals and provide 35 assists from 151 appearances for the Hoops (TransferMarkt).
Transfer Tavern Verdict
With the Hoops currently 19 points behind Rangers in the title race, Edouard may be looking to put things in place to switch clubs this month, or may even next summer, and having such a big agency backing him could potentially open more doors for the Frenchman.
That being said, he could also simply want new representation to help him negotiate an improved contract with Celtic, with his current deal due to expire in 2022.
Either way, whether it be for a transfer or a new deal, Celtic will be speaking to new people when it comes to discussions about Edouard’s future.
