Football Insider has revealed that Celtic have terminated the contract of Frenchman Oliver Ntcham. Yes, I know, it’s football insider and must be taken with a pinch of salt but it’s a concerning report.
It is claimed that Celtic found a loophole in his current contract which was signed in 2018. Ntcham was on loan at French team Marseille, where he struggled to get game time under his belt, this led to Marseille not taking up the reported optional £4.5 million which would make his move permanent.
To let Ntcham walk for free seems ludicrous, especially with many players eyeing up a move this summer he could have been part of the new manager’s plans.
Aged 25, he still has a promising future ahead and has demonstrated how skillful he can be. Ntcham scored the winner in Rome last year, which saw Celtic defeat Lazio to win their Europa League group.
Ntcham has scored 24 goals and assisted 13 in his 147 games for Celtic.
