A Celtic source has confirmed that Hoops star Odsonne Edouard is expected to sign a new bumper deal with the Scottish champions that would see him earn a significant wage and most importantly, see Edouard stay with Celtic for 10 in a row.
The Frenchman is Celtic’s key man and theres no doubt about that, with Edouard only having 2 years left on his current deal, it would be heartbreaking for the striker to rundown his contract and effectively leave for peanuts.
Speaking to Football Insider, a Celtic source told the website progress was being made:
‘An agreement is not yet in place with the centre-forward and his camp but constructive discussions have taken place and there is a growing confidence in the Parkhead boardroom that a deal can be done.’
This deal would be the most important thing Celtic will do all summer as the Edouard and Griffiths partnership must continue next season as it was only beginning to flourish, those two strikers together could be a force to be reckoned with in all competitions next season and vital to Neil Lennon.
