Celtic Football Club striker Odsonne Edouard is still very much interested in the idea of leaving the Scottish Premiership club this summer after his proposed transfer to Leicester City fell through some weeks ago. English Premier League side Leicester initiated a move to sign the France international striker this summer as Brendan Rodgers insisted he was going to bolster his forward line at the club but Celtic put the English club off by placing a huge transfer fee on his head. After several attempts to negotiate a cheaper amount for Edouard without any success, Leicester decided to drop the move and went for Patson Daka instead.


They completed a signing of Zambian international striker Patson Daka from RB Salzburg for a fee of around £23 million and the 23-year-old has been tipped to make a huge impact at the King Power Stadium this season. Edouard is said to be frustrated by the fact that Celtic did not allow him to seal his dream move and he has now decided that he would not be signing a contract extension and is now willing to run down the final 12 months currently remaining in his contract at the moment.

Edouard is a star player for Celtic and that’s probably the reason they were reluctant to let him join Leicester City by placing a huge transfer fee on his head but they may still be losing him for either a less amount (this season) or nothing (next season) if he insists on not signing a new deal at the club.

With only 12 months left on his current contract, Celtic would be forced to sell him this summer if they want to cash in on him. He is said to be trying to force a move away from the club and having been linked with Italian Serie A club Napoli, he could be handing a transfer request in the coming days before the summer transfer window closes.
