Brendan Rodgers has talked up the chances of young striker Timothy Weah remaining at the club beyond the end of the season.

Celtic signed the Paris Saint-Germain youngster on loan until the summer during the January transfer window.

Since arriving at the club, Weah has impressed when he has featured for the Hoops.

After a bright start, there has been plenty of talk about who could be staying at the club next season.

Celtic were busy in the loan market during the January window, but the likes of Oliver Burke and Jeremy Toljan could come at a price if the club wants to secure permanent deals.

Speaking about the potential of Weah remaining at the club next season, as reported by the Sunday Post, Rodgers sounded optimistic that a deal could be done.

He’s 18, so depending on how that goes, there’s maybe a possibility of extending that. But I don’t like to talk too much. It’s a wee bit disrespectful to the team we bring them from because what happens is there’s a headline out there that says. ‘We want to buy….’

The relationship is good with PSG through Odsonne Edouard and some of the other players that we have spoken about to them. So there’s nothing at the end of it. Let’s see how it goes and then we’ll review it with the club and him and his family.

Regular game time is far from guaranteed at PSG and the French side could decide that another loan move is the best option for the striker.
