Odsonne Edouard’s response to worrying transfer links on his future have been reassuring for Celtic fans.
Celtic’s star forward Edouard has just won player of the month and all the rumors are starting to come out as usual, of course they are, he’s a fantastic player with lots of potential to be one of the best players in the world.
Edouard seems to be following in the footsteps of another Celtic Frenchman in the name of Dembele, who hit the ground running and had instant success in the Hoops and earned a mega money deal at Lyon.
Celtic fans wont want Edouard to leave in January as we are trying to clinch that sweet 9th league in a row, but the big French powerhouse has been on fire for France u21s and all eyes are on him.
But one good thing that has come out of all the rumors has been a somewhat vote of confidence from Edouard himself as he rubbished the claims that Napoli have contacted him and with all the negative press from the Italian league these days why on earth would he go there.
French Eddie had this to say:
“I actually didn’t know about this (the report) and it doesn’t really matter. At the moment I’m a Celtic player.
“I’ve got a season to play, I’ve got a long contract, I’m really happy with the way I’m playing, the set-up here and I’m really happy to play with my friends for the team.
“The main thing at the moment is I’m a Celtic player and I’m happy to be a Celtic player. I’ve still got a lot to prove with Celtic, as part of the Celtic team. There’s a long season ahead of us, we need to concentrate on that.”
If Celtic can keep Edouard happy and scoring at least until the summer then we should be happy as deep down we all know he will go at some-point, clinch nine in a row then offer him what he needs for one more season, explain that he stays for the historic ten in a row then he earns the grace from us all to leave and further his own career.
