Celtic are set to break their transfer record this week as they look to formalise a permanent deal with PSG for Odsonne Edouard, while sources inside the Parkhead club have rubbished any link from Leicester for manager Brendan Rodgers.

The French striker has made it clear to his representatives that it is at Celtic where he wishes to be next season and with the Parkhead side having until Saturday to trigger the clause they agreed with PSG last August, it is expected that talks will be ongoing this week to secure the services of Edouard this week.

It is believed that the fee for the forward is £10m, a significant outlay from the Parkhead side whose current transfer record is just over £6m. However, having worked with Edouard this season, Rodgers has been particularly vocal about the qualities he sees in the striker.

Rodgers himself has been subject to speculation this summer already and this weekend saw him linked with the Leicester job by the English media. There has been speculation that Claude Puel, the current Leicester manager, will be replaced this summer with reports putting Rodgers as the Foxes number one target.

That was met with some scorn within Celtic Park with the Parkhead side in no fear that their manager is anything other than content with where he is.

One player who could be set to go, however, is Stuart Armstrong. The Parkhead midfielder signed a one-year deal last August after a protracted summer of speculation but it has been a difficult campaign with injury this term.

The Scotland internationalist has been linked with Crystal Palace and West Brom and it seems inevitable that he will pursue new pastures for this coming season.

Elsewhere, Dedryck Boyata has warmed up for the World Cup by telling the Belgian supporters that he wished he had gone to Celtic earlier in his career.

It remains to be seen just how fit defenders Vincent Komany and Thomas Vermaelen are for the tournaments, meaning that Boyata could find himself playing more game time than he might have anticipated.

“I’ve never played in Belgium and the public there don’t know me as well,” he said. “My aim is therefore to do my very best and to show the public what I am capable of. But I do not regret leaving Belgium so early.

“The only thing I regret is that I stayed at Manchester City for too long.

“I never got a chance there and I should have left City a lot earlier.”

And he believes his injury-free season under Brendan Rodgers helps his chances of featuring for Belgium, who play with three-at-the-back.

“I played at Celtic for a whole year in a three-man defence,” explained Boyata. “My first goal was to get into the provisional squad and then the final 23-man squad. So I was very relieved when I made it because it’s my first World Cup. I was injured for Euro 2016 and I went through a very difficult period. That was really the biggest disappointment of my career.

“But I am now in a situation that can cause me to finally forget that hell.

“I know the system Belgium play because it’s the same at Celtic, but I’m happy to play anywhere to be honest.

“I really hope Vincent [Kompany] makes it. I’ve known him for ten years as a colleague and a friend. I can talk to him about everything.

“He’s always positive, even if he is injured. It’s unfortunate what happened to him, but he is a quick healer.”
