Elyounoussi Speaks Out On Whether He Will Stay At Celtic Beyond The Summer

Celtic winger Mohamed Elyounoussi says he is yet to decide where he will be playing his football after the end of his loan spell at the Scottish champions.

The Norwegian international has been in sensational form for the Hoops over the last month, but when asked about his future, the midfielder was non-commital, stating he was only focused on what happens this season:

“I haven’t even thought about what is going to happen in the future. All I think about is what is going to happen in the next training session and then the next game. I never look too far ahead.”

“When the season is finished I will sit down and look at all of my options, but right now I am just happy to be here and playing for Celtic. I think I need to focus on the here and now and not the future or the past.”

Elyounoussi has scored six goals and provided three assists in his last five games, leading to many Celtic fans calling on the club to sign the player on a permanent basis.

However, Bhoys boss Neil Lennon has already hinted that the finances of any transfer could prove too costly for the club, with the 25-year-old having signed for Southampton in a £16m deal back in 2018.

Celtic would probably hope to get a discount on what the Saints paid, but it’s still likely to be a sizeable sum. A decision will probably be made closer to the end of the campaign after Elyounoussi’s performances over the course of the whole season can be assessed.
