FORGOTTEN LOAN CELT Odsonne Edouard has been named on a list of 100 teenagers ‘to watch’ in world football.

Publication FourFourTwo and Football Manager got together to comprise a list of the very best youngsters playing the beautiful game around the world and he PSG Loanee is one of them.
Edouard has only played five times for Celtic so far this season and hasn’t really been seen since Leigh Griffiths and Moussa Dembele got back to full fitness.
With such a massive buy-out clause at the end of his loan spell, it would take a brilliant second half of the season for Celtic to even consider making his loan move permanent. Right now, there isn’t any space for him in the team, but should either of Celtic’s top strikers succumb to a long layoff then he would be straight in contention again.
The player comes 93rd on the list and this is how FourFourTwo describe the youngster.

FourFourTwo’s Michael Yokhin writes: “A tall, burly striker born in French Guiana, Edouard has already achieved quite a lot.

“He was top scorer at the 2015 European U17 Championship with eight goals – the best-ever record in the competition – and then produced some sterling performances for PSG in the UEFA Youth League as they reached the final in 2016. Edouard scored his first Ligue 1 goal last season while on loan at Toulouse.

“This term he could become a key player for Celtic, and found the net on his Scottish Premiership debut.

“Highlight so far: His hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Germany in the final of the 2015 U17 Euros was phenomenal, and Edouard was rightfully selected as the best player of the tournament.”
