Attacker Timo Weah admits it’s a possibility he could extend his stay at Celtic into next season, as reported by The Daily Record.
The 19-year-old has been a hit with supporters since making the switch from Paris Saint-Germain in January but has found his playing time limited under Neil Lennon.
He has insisted though this isn’t having a negative impact on his stay at the Hoops and will discuss the prospect of staying at Celtic Park beyond this season at the end of the current campaign.
When asked about a potential new loan deal, as quoted by The Daily Record, the youngster said:
I feel like it’s a possibility. It’s something me and my family have to go over at the end of the season. I am loving it here so far so we just have to see what happens.
I’m really positive about the situation, happy to be at the club and making the most of these opportunities.
When I do get game time I just try to help the team and be positive, and I try to get a goal and help the team when I can. That’s been my mentality from the start and it’s going to be my mentality until the end of the season.
I am really happy and just blessed to get the opportunities I’ve got so far.
His current loan from Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of the season so we would of course need to work out a new deal for the teenager, but if he is happy in Glasgow then the French side are unlikely stand in his way at this point of his development.
Improvement is likely to directly correlate with the amount of game time he gets so if we can find a way to give him more minutes on the pitch then we’ll likely be rewarded with goals and assists.
He could prove to be an effective weapon in our challenge to win nine-in-a-row.
