Leaving Paris Saint-Germain for Celtic on loan, Odsonne Édouard impressed so much that the Scottish Premiership champions decided to make the move permanent.
The forward quickly replaced Moussa Dembélé when his compatriot left for Lyon, and he’s since attracted a lot of attention with his performances over the past year, as clubs like Monaco and Lazio have been sniffing around.
He’s also earned himself a spot in France’s U21 squad this international break and scored two goals on his full debut in a 3-1 win over Czech Republic.
After the game, the Celtic player had a chat with Canal Plus, where he gave an update on his situation up north and revealed he was still keeping an eye on what was going on at his former club, Paris Saint-Germain.
He said: “Yeah, things are going well in Scotland. It’s all down to hard work, you know. I keep working. I don’t let go. PSG? I still follow them, they’re the club of my heart. I watch their games. I still have friends there who came through with me at the academy.
“For now, [returning] isn’t something I’m thinking about. I’m currently enjoying myself, I’m playing and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
So far this season, Édouard has scored an impressive six goals and assisted teammates five times for Celtic in all competitions, taking his tally to 39 goals in 92 games since arriving back in 2017.
If he continues that way, someone will seriously come knocking next summer, and it will be up to Neil Lennon and co. to decide whether or not to cash in, like they did for Dembélé, or try and hold onto him for even longer.
