Former Celtic striker John Hartson believes that Leicester City a getting a very good deal in their reported pursuit for Odsonne Edouard.
Taking to Twitter, Hartson admitted he couldn’t help thinking that the Hoops were getting ‘screwed over’ with a deal of around £18 million reportedly getting closer between the two sides.
If Leicester get edouard for the reported 18m.. they will be getting a damn good player.. in today’s market he is at least £30m .. can’t help think Celtic being screwed over again.

Of course, with Edouard being the club’s record sale and the talent he possesses, you would imagine we originally hoped to get more for the 23-year old.
However, the Frenchman’s contract situation plays a key part in this transfer deal.
As he enters the final year of his deal at Celtic this summer, this is the boards final chance to cash in on Edouard. With plenty of sides interested, Leicester looks to be the ones who have won the race.
The one thing about this deal is that it could be key going forward in getting more funds for the new managers to rebuild his squad.
There is a lot to be done, and you would imagine Edouard is only the first of many movements within the club this summer.
