Loads of Celtic fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as Olivier Ntcham is reportedly in line for a new contract.
According to The Daily Record (22:40), Celtic are lining up a new deal for Ntcham to fend off transfer interest.
Brendan Rodgers confirmed the news, saying: “There was interest in Olivier but we sat down with him and his representatives and talked through the plan.”
He’s been here one year and it shows the development he’s had with the interest shown in him. We’re not ready to sell.”
The French midfielder has been one of the few Celtic players to actually start this season in good form, so it would be a disaster to lose him this late in the window.
West Ham were linked with a move for Ntcham earlier this summer, and most fans are breathing a huge sigh of relief over the contract talks, while a few suspect the “like a new signing” cliché will be in full effect.
It remains to be seen whether his compatriot Moussa Dembele will still be a Celtic player when the window slams shut tomorrow, but at 22 Ntcham has a lot more to offer.
It’s been a hugely disappointing transfer window for the Hoops, but loads of fans have been reacting to the Ntcham news, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Finally some good news….hopefully get some faces through the door

Im all for a new deal but can we not sort that out after the window shuts and concentrate on getting some replacements in?

Celtic get interest in Ntcham then the next day they sign a similar style player that they could have signed 6 weeks ago….. I smell a Jan exit.
