Celtic defender Christopher Jullien has backed Odsonne Edouard ahead of the summer, insisting the striker is happy in Scotland amid talk of a move away from the Bhoys.
Edouard is being persistently linked with a move away from the Scottish champions. His goals have helped Celtic romp to a ninth successive title.
However, as is the norm with top players in Scotland, some of Europe’s biggest and best are now sniffing. Indeed, Spurs are just one club thought to be keen, with a £25m fee being quoted to Jose Mourinho’s men.
But Jullien is hopeful his teammate and friend will stay put, telling The Herald that he hopes things will work out.
“I speak with Odsonne a lot. We are friends. I know how good Celtic is for him and how happy he is right now.
I don’t know what’s going to happen, but personally I think he is at one of the best clubs in Europe. We will see what happens, but I hope everything is going to be fine for next season.”
Jullien’s thoughts will no doubt echo those of all who support the club.

Sadly for Celtic fans, it seems the only way Odsonne Edouard is staying put is if a club fails to stump up the cash.
The 22-year-old is simply too much of a hot property across Europe to not get a move. Of course, that doesn’t mean Celtic cannot stand their ground and demand the right fee.
Despite a depleted market and likely lower transfer fees this summer, Celtic are still right to demand upwards of £25m.
That could play into their hands, too. If nobody fancies splashing the cash, then Edouard might just stick around.
