Paris St. Germain striker Odsonne Edouard is eyeing up a permanent move to Celtic following a successful loan spell with the Scottish champions.
The 20-year-old has spent the season on loan with Brendan Rodgers’ side and while it is expected he will return to the French champions during the summer, the player and the club are looking to make the move back to Parkhead permanent.
The Frenchman, who arrived with little senior experience, has impressed during his time in Glasgow scoring 11 times in 28 games, including against rivals Rangers.
Speaking to French newspaper L’Equipe, Edouard expressed his desire to return to the Celtic next season, saying: “For me, it’s the best option to stay at Celtic. I’m comfortable at the club, with the team and the coach. My objective is to stay here.
“Celtic is a top club, they have a top coach, who has helped me step up a level. Next year, I want to play for France U21.”
Edouard has also made his debut among the European elite during a Champions League group stage clash with his parent club, PSG.
Edouard added: “It was unforgettable. It’ll stay with me for life. I was on the bench and looked up – it was incredible. After the game, the PSG players were stunned by the atmosphere.”
