ODSONNE EDOUARD has revealed the day he will quit Celtic – but admitted he is totally committed to the 10-in-a-row bid this season.

The French striker, the club’s top scorer last season with 28 goals, was at the centre of intense transfer speculation during the summer.

The fans’ favourite, who is under contract until June 2022, has a massive role to play in a monumental campaign, but his form has suffered with only five goals before testing positive for coronavirus while on Under-21 duty in Paris earlier this month.

Edouard has missed the games against Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox side, AC Milan and Aberdeen – three matches in which the Hoops have failed to win – which again underlined his worth to the team.

The 22-year-old forward, who cost a club record £9million when he arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in June 2018, confirmed in a French TV interview his long-term target is to move to a higher level.

Edouard, speaking to Telefoot, said: “I’ve been here for three years and for sure when the time comes, I’ll think about leaving, look for a higher league.

“Right now, I’m focused on this season and when the right time comes I’ll make the decision to go.”

The hitman, who spent a season in Glasgow on loan before making the switch permanent, was asked if he’d go to England or return to his homeland.

Edouard smiled and replied: “Honestly, I haven’t really thought about it. I don’t know what the future holds.”
