French publication La Depeche du Midi have reported that Vakoun Bayo looks to be on the way out of Celtic as he has travelled to France ahead of his medical with Ligue 2 club Toulouse.

The Ivorian striker has been linked with a move out of Parkhead for a number of weeks and it seems as though his departure may now be imminent.

A reported permanent deal with a fee of around £500k has been suggested for Bayo, who looks set to leave the Scottish champions having only made eight first-team appearances.

The 23-year-old arrived in Scotland from Slovakian third division side FC DAC 1904 Dunajska Streda, where he scored 14 goals in just 25 games in 2018/19, earning him his move to the Hoops.

With just two goals to his name during his time at Celtic Park, Bayo’s time will not be remembered too fondly by the player himself.

The striker, who has two Ivory Coast caps, will now hope to resurrect his career in France.

Celtic are already in the market for a replacement for Bayo, with Albian Ajeti, Ivan Toney and Lyle Taylor heavily linked in the last few days.

Bhoys manager Neil Lennon also admitted to holding talks with former Scotland striker Steven Fletcher, although those discussions are believed to have come to no avail.
