  • Celtic delighted to sign Odsonne Edouard

    Celtic delighted to sign Odsonne Edouard

    By: Newsroom Staff on 31 Aug, 2017 22:02

  • CELTIC tonight are thrilled to announce the signing of highly-rated French striker Odsonne Edouard from Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan deal, with the club obtaining an option to buy the player.

    The 19-year-old earned a reputation as one of the hottest prospects in European football when he helped fire France to glory at the UEFA European U17 Championship.

    He set a new record in the competition, finding the net eight times, including a hat-trick in the final against Germany. These feats saw him named as the tournament’s Golden Player.

    A product of PSG’s academy, the French Guiana-born player enjoyed a prolific record in front of goal at various youth levels for the Ligue 1 club.

    After starring for the Parisians’ second-string, Edouard netted on his first senior appearance for PSG, completing the scoring in a 4-0 triumph over Leicester in the 2016 International Champions Cup. He spent last season on loan at French top-flight side Toulouse.

    Edouard becomes Celtic’s fifth signing of the summer transfer window, following the arrivals of Jonny Hayes, Kundai Benyu, Olivier Ntcham and Patrick Roberts, as Brendan Rodgers’ side aim to continue their domestic dominance and look forward to another UEFA Champions League adventure. 

    The new Bhoy said: "I am absolutely delighted to be joining Celtic, one of the world's truly great football clubs, and I can’t wait to wear the famous Celtic jersey.

    "I am really looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and we will work hard together to bring our fans as much success as possible.'

    Odsonne Edouard will be unveiled to the media at a press conference tomorrow afternoon at Celtic Park.
