West Brom are reported to be interested in taking Olivier Ntcham to the EPL.

The midfielder has been drifting out of the Celtic side this season with Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull now ahead of the Frenchman for a place in Neil Lennon’s side.

With 18 months left on his Celtic contract it seems likely that he will be on the move at some stage in 2021 but a relegation battle might not be his idea of career progress.

Sam Allardyce has just taken charge of West Brom and is expected to bring in a couple of players in January to bolster the squad that he inherited from Slaven Bilic.

Like most Celtic players Ntcham has been linked with Southampton in the past, Celtic signed the midfielder from Manchester City in July 2017 with a contract extension signed a year later.

Ntcham moved to City straight from school in France and spent a season on loan with Genoa in Serie A before joining Celtic.
