Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham has admitted that he wants to leave the Scottish Premiership giants this summer amid interest from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille.

The France youth international was linked with Porto last summer, but a move fell through after the Portuguese giants failed to meet Celtic’s asking price.

Ntcham is also wanted by Lyon, and the 23-year-old believes leaving the Premiership for a better league will do his development and progress a lot of good.

His comments haven’t gone down well with many Hoops fans, though, and here is how some of them reacted to it on Twitter:

Ntcham joined Celtic from Manchester City in the summer of 2017, hitting the ground running and establishing himself as a mainstay in Brendan Rodgers’ starting lineup.

However, he has struggled to impose himself on the team following Neil Lennon’s arrival in February, and has found himself dispensable all of a sudden.

The Frenchman’s dip in form during the second-half of last season and his struggles with consistency have made him lose his place in the lineup, and his latest comments will surely turn the Hoops faithful against him.

A departure looks very likely for Ntcham at this point, and Celtic will be keen to grant his exit wishes.
