Celtic will certainly face a massive overhaul this summer, so it makes complete sense to discuss the prospects of the four loanees currently at the club.
Jonjoe Kenny has seemed like a solid addition to the Celtic’s squad, and he hasn’t failed, but if it’s going to require a Premier League transfer fee and salary package to make it permanent than it would be safer spending the money elsewhere.
It is possible to draw the conclusion that Southampton would want a lot of compensation to let Elyounoussi go, but it is not a clear choice.
He has created some fantastic goods and when on form he is one of the best players in the league, but injuries are a problem and if he is not feeling positive then he goes missing in games.
Diego Laxalt does divide sentiment among the fans as there’s a lot to enjoy about his playing, but he can be a decapitated bird at times and it’s the last thing you need when the defence is losing and scoring goals.
It’s definitely going to cost a large fee to persuade AC Milan to sell, so it makes sense to dig out the money for other players instead.
It’s better to make the call on Shane Duffy when he’s suffered for so long and other teams feel like they can have everything against him, so he has to find a new club to restore his image.
It means that the players will all be sent back to their parent clubs, and Frank McAvennie indicated recently that this is what he thinks will happen.
“I know there is four players on loan and I expect them all to go back. Kenny, Laxalt, Duffy and Elyounoussi – they will go back. They will not be there next season.”
