Odsonne Edouard has spoken out about his Celtic future in a recent interview with the French media.
The 22-year-old was linked with a move away over the summer but remained at Parkhead past the deadline. A recent report confirmed that the only offer The Hoops officially received, and turned down, was from a German side.
Edouard, who tested positive for the virus during the international break and has missed the club’s last three fixtures in all competitions as a result, has now had his say on his future.
Talking to French outlet Telefoot, cited by the Daily Record, Edouard said this:
I’ve been here for three years, and for sure when the time comes I’ll think about leaving, look for a higher league.

In our view, Celtic officials need to make a decision on Edouard fairly quickly.
He’s confirmed his plans to search for a move to a higher league in the future, and The Hoops need to do what is right for the club.
It doesn’t look likely, to us, following his 22-word response that he’ll be interested in extending his Parkhead stay past 2022.
He’ll be 24 years of age by then and may view that as the perfect time to move on.
Realistically, the club only have the next two transfer windows to sell the forward for a sizeable fee, so it’ll be interesting to see what they do with the Frenchman.
