Celtic fans seem ready to boot one of their players out the door, amidst reports of interest from a Premier League team.

According to a claim from journalist Anthony Joseph, West Brom are interested in bringing in Olivier Ntcham this window and have already have an initial enquiry over his services. This isn’t the first time this season that the Frenchman has been on the brink of leaving Parkhead this campaign, as he was courted by French clubs Bordeaux and Brest back in the summer transfer window.

He hasn’t found going all that easy in recent weeks at Celtic, starting less than half of their games this campaign, and being reduced to a substitute in recent weeks in Neil Lennon’s side.

So when news came through to the fans that he could be on his way out, fans didn’t seem too eager to hang on to him:

“Great player but hasn’t been utilised properly and hasn’t looked motivated when he has played.”

“I still like Ntcham but if the price is right I’d let him leave this window.”
“Just get the money back we paid for him and get him punted. He doesn’t want to be here.”
“Just too inconsistent im afraid, on his day he’s a baller but the polar opposite when he’s not. Wouldnt miss him too much as he’s largely been rotational and never stuck in the 11 plus can see us getting a decent offer from prem/ligue 1 teams – punt for me”
“Best for both club & player to move him on. He looks interested about 2 or 3 games per season. Obviously a very talented player but he clearly wants a move”
“Won’t be missed in fairness”
“Exactly what we need. Hope it’s true”
“Great player on his day but doesn’t turn up often enough. I’d take anything 10 million plus for him. I’d definitely expect us to sell at least 1 player for decent money too given the last financial results. Desmond probably turned up the pressure on Lawwell to keep us profitable”
“2021 looking up already”
“I am in bits. Please hold out for a better move than West Brom, King”
“Yaaaaaaas. 2021 is already better than 2020”

Would you mind if Olivier Ntcham was sold by Celtic?

Yes, he needs to stay

Yes, he needs to stay

No, he's not that good

No, he's not that good

Given where Celtic are right now and how far behind bitter rivals Rangers they are in the league, they may need all the money they can get in order to rebuild for next season, and starting off by selling someone like Ntcham might just be the first piece of the puzzle.
