Frank McAvennie has claimed that he would be “disappointed” to see Olivier Ntcham leave Celtic this summer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Jason Jones, the former Hoops striker claimed that the 24-year-old is a “wonderful” player who deserves more of a chance in the starting XI at Parkhead.
According to a report from 90min, a number of Premier League sides are keeping tabs on the Frenchman, including Southampton, Everton, and McAvennie’s former club, West Ham.
But the ex-Scotland international has made it clear that he would rather see Ntcham stay in Glasgow for the foreseeable future.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Listen, I rate him so highly.
“I’d love to see Celtic keep him and find a space for him because he’s a wonderful player. He compliments Scott Brown a lot. People say he’s Scott Brown’s replacement, but I think they play well together.
