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.

The Foxes have been busy in the past few weeks after already agreeing a deal for Soumare and they have not stopped there. While they are also close to agreeing a deal in principle with Tarkowski, they are now nearing a deal for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.
They opened talks for the striker some days ago and have already progressed significantly as they are already coming close to agreeing a fee with the club after already agreeing to personal terms with the player. Celtic are said to be demanding around £18 million for the striker and Leicester are said to be willing to pay that amount, meaning that a deal could be agreed, signed, and delivered for the striker in just a few days from now or in the next week the latest.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon praised his team after claiming a crucial victory over Dundee. Odsonne Edouard came up with a goal in the 96th minute of the match to beat Dundee and open up a 10-point advantage at the top of the SPL for Celtic. Lennon was extremely pleased with the victory as it took full advantage of the Rangers dropping points at home against Kilmarnock. There was expectation from Celtic about a comfortable victory in this match since Dundee have been struggling at the bottom end of the table for most of the season. The opponents were just one point ahead of the bottom coming into the match.
However, they put in a resolute defensive display and Celtic’s mediocre away form so far this season also started to rear the ugly head. Just when it seemed that Celtic were about to drop points for an eighth away match,Edouard was able to come up with this crucial goal. James Forrest was influential in helping Edouard get this going after playing a one-two in a tight spot. After the game, Lennon claimed that patience from the team was a key factor in getting this victory. Hearts and Kilmarnock were also defeated by Celtic in similar fashion, and Lennon is very happy to see the team going with belief until the final whistle.
