ODSONNE EDOUARD admitted he is in the dark over reports Serie A outfit Napoli were showing an interest in him.

The Celtic striker was in the spotlight after his superb opening goal in the 2-0 win at Ibrox before the international break in which he made his debut for the France Under-21 team.

Edouard came off the substitutes’ bench with his nation leading 1-0 in a friendly against Albania and promptly banged in two goals as they went on to win 4-0.

And he was centre stage again three days later when he started against the Czech Republic and netted a double as they came back from a goal down to triumph 3-1.

The former Paris Saint-Germain prospect was asked if he wanted to follow Moussa Dembele out of Parkhead to get into the full French team

Edouard, 21, speaking to CelticTV, said: “I’m really happy for Moussa, he’s a great friend of mine. He deserves it, he works hard and has a lot of potential.

“Each player has his own career and his own path. I’m happy with his path, but I’ve got my own path.“

Speaking about possible interest from Italy, Edouard responded: “I didn’t know about that, to be honest.

“I am a Celtic player, I have a long contract. I’m really happy with the set-up here, I get to play with my friends and for the team.

“The main thing is I’m a Celtic player and I’m happy to be a Celtic player.”

Edouard will be in action for the Hoops in his homeland on Thursday evening when Neil Lennon’s men take on Rennes in the opening game of the Europa League group.
