Loan bhoy on the comeback trail

Vakoun Bayo is back in training after exactly a month out of action with a torn thigh muscle.

The striker moved to Toulouse on loan in August and celebrated his debut with two goals away to Grenoble in a 5-3 defeat. Boyo went on to make five more appearances before he suffered his injury in the 1-0 victory away to Ajaccio on October 17.

In his absence Toulouse have won two and lost one match to sit in ninth place in the French Second Division after last season’s relegation.

With Neil Lennon having four strikers to choose from it looks like Bayo has his work cut out to make inroads into a regular game for Celtic with his time at Toulouse more likely to put him in the shop window for a move elsewhere.

Celtic paid a reported £2m to Slovak side Dunajska Streda for Bayo in January 2019 but with Patryk Klimala and Albian Ajeti signing since then it looks like the 23-year-old is destined to leave Celtic if a reasonable offer comes in.
