Eboue Kouassi looks set to leave the club this month as the midfielder closes in on a move to Belgian outlet Genk.

Earlier this season, Football Insider revealed Kouassi informed his agent of his desire to leave the club either permanently or on loan this month.

And the midfielder’s wishes appear to have come true, with Belgian outlet HLN claiming:

Racing Genk is about to strengthen itself with the Ivorian midfielder Eboue Kouassi. The 22-year-old Ivorian from Celtic was already at the club yesterday. The final details are expected to be cleared out this weekend.

The Daily Record also stated on Saturday that the deal is expected to be a loan with an option to buy in the summer, and Kouassi underwent a medical over this weekend.


Agreeing a deal for Kouassi to leave on loan this month certainly seems like a good deal for all involved.

The £3m-rated midfielder has struggled to break into the side since recovering from a horrible knee injury he suffered in 2018.

And with Ismaila Soro looking likely to arrive at the club this month, with Lennon confirming a fee has been agreed for the midfielder, BBC Sport revealed, Kouassi is unlikely to get any game time at Celtic this season.

Do you think a loan move is good for Kouassi?



Therefore moving on loan will allow the 22-year-old to regain his match fitness and confidence, and impress Genk enough to earn himself a permanent move there in the summer.

Another good piece of business this month, in our view.
