You can be sure there is something firm in the story when Sky Sports and The Guardian both report Leicester City have opened talks with Celtic over the future of Odsonne Edouard. Like a few in the squad, Odsonne has made it clear he wants to move to England when, or before, his current contract expires in June next year.
The player’s form suffered from illness and two periods of self-isolation last season, these are mitigating factors but it’s fair to say some among the support would be happy to take the cash and move our prime talent on, irrespective of the end of his contract looming.
Tapping up is, of course, illegal, but I would be surprised if Leicester had not made their terms to the player clear in a indirect way. If Odsonne wants to team-up with his former Celtic boss he is likely to get his way. Once Celtic are through with all their other priorities, they will doubtlessly try to get another club interested.
