On-loan Celtic sensation Timothy Weah has told French outlet Le Parisien that he does not know where his future lies, and will discuss his next move at the end of the season.
Weah, who turned 19 in February, had fallen down the pecking order at Paris Saint-Germain under Thomas Tuchel. The signing of Eric Choupo-Moting pushed the eight-time United States international further down the rankings.
He managed just three outings during the first half of the season. Despite scoring in a Ligue 1 match against Caen and France’s version of the Community Shield – a 4-0 win against Monaco – Weah was hardly used by Tuchel.
Now, Weah has discussed his future and although he did not state he would remain at Celtic, his comments will certainly give Hoops fans plenty of encouragement in keeping the attacker in Glasgow.

“We never know, we’ll see after the season,” Weah said, when asked about his future. “We will talk about it with Badou [Sambague, Weah’s agent].
“Frankly I do not know. Everyone has their life. I think it was good for them. For now, I’m not sure what I’ll do, we’ll discuss it,” When asked if he would follow Yacine Adli (Bordeaux) and Antoine Bernede (Leipzig) in leaving.
Weah has huge calibre given his father was a previous Ballon d’Or winner, and that he is 19 and has scored goals for Paris Saint-Germain’s senior side. It means his value is likely to be too much for Celtic to afford.
But the chances of a second loan at Celtic Park looks very much on the cards. There had already been murmurs in the media that Weah may agree a loan beyond the end of the season.
With his chances of first-team football at PSG unlikely, Weah needs to leave the club to continue his progression. Celtic is perfect.
