Attacker Timo Weah is still open to the possibility of joining Celtic this summer despite having his loan cut short by manager Neil Lennon, as reported by The Scottish Sun.
Many assumed the young PSG prospect had played his last game for the Hoops when he left Lennoxtown on Friday but it appears the chance of him signing up for another season, or longer, is stronger than first thought.
The French club has put him on the transfer list ahead of the summer window, say The Scottish Sun, believing he does not have a future in the first-team there.
The £4.5m-rated player seems keen on a Celtic Park return too.
As quoted by the paper, the 19-year-old said:
There haven’t been any talks yet. I will talk to my parents and lawyers. I have got a couple of options.
Coming back to Celtic is definitely an option. The manager situation doesn’t matter to me. It’s more about the club and me feeling comfortable here.
If you know you have the opportunity to develop and get game time, that is the most important thing at this stage.
I’m ambitious and want to be somewhere where I can break into the first team. These are the things you have to think about.
The United States international has made 17 appearances since arriving on loan in January, although only four of those have been starts.
Contributing four goals and an assist, many fans feel he should have been given more opportunities by Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon.
If he committed to the club and signing permanently it would make those opportunities more likely whoever the manager is, knowing an investment of playing time would benefit everyone on a long-term basis.
Certainly one to watch over the coming months.
