Celtic winger Mohamed Elyounoussi has refused to put a timeframe on his stay at Parkhead. The Norwegian international’s loan deal expires in the summer but he says he is committed to the Scottish club for however long he stays:
“No matter how long I’m here for, it’s my goal to give my all in every single game. I want to help this club win silverware, and that’s why I’m here.”
The 25-year-old has also vowed to pay back the faith Celtic supporters have shown in him since his arrival in August:
“Whenever I go for a walk in the city, I can feel the positivity from the Celtic fans. They only ever talk positively to me. All I want to do is repay them by helping Celtic win more trophies.”
Elyounoussi’s fitness issues mean a permanent transfer to Celtic Park in the summer is looking unlikely at the moment. As well as a toe injury which kept him out for the best part of six weeks, he has also had a niggling hamstring problem which has hampered his game time recently.
Those issues have hit his form with his last goal coming all the way back in November against Hibernian in the Betfred Cup. If his performances don’t pick up, he will probably be returned to Southampton in the summer.
