Odsonne Edouard Celtic transfer twist

Odsonne Edouard, who has been linked with a move away from Celtic, is said to be willing to remain at the club until the end of next season.

He is in the last year of his deal with Celtic, and has already attracted a couple of suitors this summer.

Brighton and Southampton have been linked with a deal, while Roma is said to be interested in the 23-year-old.

However, with the Saints signing Adam Armstrong and Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham allegedly close to joining Jose Mourinho’s side, the alternatives for a departure look to be decreasing.

According to the Daily Mail, Edouard could now finish his contract in the Scottish Premiership and leave for free next year.

Celtic are interested in OH Leuven striker Thomas Henry, according to the report, but a trade will only be finalized if the former PSG forward leaves.

He appears to be ready to wait until January to sign a pre-contract with an interested club, leaving Celtic without a transfer price.

Last season, Edouard netted 22 goals in 40 games, and he has scored more than 20 goals in each of the previous three seasons.
