Olivier Ntcham has revealed that he is fully “focused” on playing for Celtic despite the current transfer interest in him.
The midfielder revealed he would be open to a reported £15million move away last summer amid interest from the likes of Marseille and Bordeaux, and speculation over his future had begun once again ahead of the January window.
Roma, Sporting Lisbon and Valencia have all been linked with a move for the Frenchman, but according to the Daily Record, Ntcham has revealed that he is no longer looking for a move away.
I still think I need a few more games to be at my best but I am going in the right direction. There is a lot more to come because I’m not quite fully fit just yet in terms of matches.
I am enjoying playing though and I am focused on Celtic, 100 per cent. I am focused on working hard every day in training and on the pitch.

Ntcham’s comments will come as a big boost to Celtic and Neil Lennon, given how the club will be looking to strengthen in January without losing any of their current options.
Though Ntcham has been somewhat of a sporadic figure this season, the Frenchman has produced arguably the moment of the campaign with that dinked finish against Lazio.
Furthermore, Ntcham is an incredibly talented footballer and he’ll no doubt be given further opportunities as the season progresses.
