Celtic set to smash transfer record!

Celtic look set to break their club record signing fee by completing a deal for Paris Saint-Germain striker Odssone Edouard on a permanent deal.

The France U19 striker joined on loan from PSG last season, impressing as he netted 11 goals in 29 appearances for the Hoops.

Rodgers has openly admitted his desire to sign the youngster permanently, saying that the 20-year-old is a top talent who has progressed well at Celtic Park since arriving.

Record Sport have reported that an agreement is close between Celtic and PSG, with the Frenchman said to be worth around £10m. That figure would eclipse the £6m record fees paid by Celtic over 20 years ago when they completed two separate deals for Chris Sutton and John Hartson.

It’s understood the French striker has told PSG he sees his future in Glasgow as he has developed under the guidance of manager Brendan Rodgers. The forward is therefore not said to be considering offers from elsewhere.

Speaking last month about the potential transfer, Rodgers said: “It’s up to the clubs. The club will meet with PSG and say where we can take it.”
