Greek journalist Giannis Chorianopolous has claimed AEK Athens have had to rethink their move for Olivier Ntcham.
The journalist along with other reporters have claimed Olivier will be available on a free, even though he has time left on his Celtic deal.
Earlier this month, the journalist claimed Athens and Ntcham had come to an agreement over wages and they were waiting for the beginning of July to announce the deal.
Now the journalist claims Celtic will NOT be releasing Ntcham early from his contract.
AEK Athens will check other CMF options except Olivier Ntcham. Greek club's officials believe that Celtic will not let him go as a free agent. So, at the moment, no Ntcham for AEK!#AEK #Celtic #CelticFC— Giannis Chorianopoulos (@choria80) June 27, 2021
Oli spent the second half of last season on-loan to Marseille but failed to make the grade in France. The Frenchman still fancies a move away by all accounts but Celtic appear to be calling the shots.
We’ll see what the new manager makes of what’s happening. The Australian manager has made it clear he’ll be talking to all players about their future. Even to the likes of Odsonne Edouard and Kristoffer Ajer who have made their intentions clear before Ange came on board.
