He said to Football Insider: “He has been phenomenal for them and he would be a huge miss if he goes.
“There is not a lot of talk about him coming into the Premier League at the moment because there has been a lack of football.
“There is now a real opportunity for Celtic now because their season is finished and we are still some way off out transfer window opening. They can try and entice him into a new deal.
“He is the best signing Celtic can make this summer.”
Edouard has been linked with a few Premier League clubs already and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
He has shown his quality in Europe and in Scotland. There is no doubt that he deserves to play for a better team.
That said, another year in Scotland could benefit his development. If he cannot find a club that will give him regular first-team football, he should look to stay at Celtic for another year.
