    After next season he will only have 1 season left so nobody will pay £40m,they will just sign him fpr free the following summer.

    saw a brilliant quote from Eddy

    " i have earned the right to play " - what a class statement, So many modern footballers forget the earning bit and focus on their own earnings

    Sell for 50 mill in January bring in high quality striker on loan till season end and identify the next 7/8mill prospect . Most likely an unpopular opinion but this guy's form at moment and considering his age and talent and position he's a 50mill player , realistically the club won't turn down that sort of money

    Not worth the upheaval it would cause the squad to do that, particularly as it gets to the business end of the season.

    He needs to be kept til the end of the season at all costs.

    As good as Edouard already is nobody is coming in with a 50m bid in January.

    yer right,, El Dufflecoat will attract those 50m bids.. French Eddy will have to start banging in goals against the dross teams or the Chinese clubs will e keeping their money in their pockets

    There are rarely decent strikers up for transfer in January windows. We need him for the full season and need him scoring.. not hunting for a downgrade at a critical point in the season. We need LG back ASAP as well.


    We cannot risk this season playing half of it without him ... whatever the offer may be in January. We need to be spending then.. not selling.

    I just hope he’s not after a move and does the ‘french huff’ thing for 5 months.

    When he does go ... we need a serious sell on % in place as 50 mill is not out of the question down the line.

    Totally agree. If we are going to sell him then it should be next summer at the earliest and if we have that in mind we should be getting started on finding his replacement now. But no way should we be selling him in January end of story.

    As for his attitude on that score I don't think we have to worry at all. He seems very happy and focused right now. There likely will come a time when he feels he wants to move on but I don't see any issue with that as long as it is handled well in advance and plans for his replacement are made well in advance. For me I hope he stays beyond this season but if he does leave next summer after finishing this season in a blaze of glory then he will go with my thanks and best wishes.

    Can't see him playing the same shenanigans as moussa when he left if a bid comes in in january. He'll be here till the summer unless there's absolute jaw dropping money offered.

    If we can find another u20 star for one of the top countries at the 10m mark hopefully the board will see that as another solid investment

    NEIL LENNON insists clubs can forget trying to buy Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard in January.

    Sides across Europe are tracking the Hoops hitman, who netted a hat-trick for France’s Under-21s in midweek.

    But Bhoys boss Lennon is adamant Edouard won’t leave when the transfer window opens.

    He said: “Absolutely not. There’s no chance of him leaving in January. We’ve got too much to do here.

    He will be linked with everybody in the next couple of weeks and come the end of January, but we are in no position to sell.

    “He is a class player and is pivotal to us.

    We may, or may not, be in Europe after January, so that’s even more reason for him not to go.

    “It wouldn’t hinge on that either, absolutely not.

    But it would be a nice carrot for him and a reason to settle himself.

    He’s been outstanding. He’s playing, he looks happy and his all-round game is coming on.”

    Edouard has scored nine goals for the Hoops this season and his treble in France’s 5-3 win over Slovakia came five days after he bagged a double in a 5-0 win over Azerbaijan.

    Lennon knows those exploits will only increase the interest in the striker, who joined from PSG in a £10million deal last year after a loan spell the previous season.

    Lazio, Roma, Napoli, Lyon and Borussia Dortmund have been linked.

    Ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Ross County, Lennon smiled: “I don’t like watching him playing for other teams. When I heard he had a hat-trick I was like, ‘Oh no!’.

    “I think it is fantastic that he is playing so well for club and country.

    “He’s started to turn himself into a really prolific goalscorer.

    “Speaking to his representatives they’re happy with the way things are going. Long may that continue.”
