Odsonne Edouard has been speaking about his future in an interview with France Football magazine.

Coming off the back of scoring the crucial winning goal against our biggest rivals, many have now turned their attention to whether we should break our club record to sign him on a permanent basis. When asked about his future, the Frenchman was pretty non-committal:

‘Frankly, I just play and finish the season.I do not think about what will happen next time. I`m having a lot of fun here at Celtic. It is an extraordinary club with a top coach and very big fans.I want to focus solely on my football and to help Celtic as best as I can.’

We have a purchase option of £7million on the 20 year old once his loan spell from PSG ends this summer, and it really is a difficult one to call. He`s scored eight goals in 23 games this season which isn`t a bad return from his first season in the league, but whether he warrants such a significant outlay is debatable.

Certainly he is developing his game all the time under Brendan, and he could become a really good player. If he does, we would surely regret losing him if we don`t decide to make his move permanent. On the other hand, his development could stall, and we could have wasted a lot of money.

The reaction on Twitter to Edouard staying have been pretty mixed:
