AEK Athens appear to have dropped their interest in Olivier Ntcham.

The Greek side worked with Celtic a year ago to sell Vasilis Barkas but there appears to have been a couple of issues involved in their negotiations for the midfielder.

Ntcham has a year left to run on his Celtic contract but after a disastrous loan spell at Marseilles he has been training on his own rather than reporting back to Lennoxtown.

There have been suggestions that Ntcham was free to negotiate a contract elsewhere but that has been countered by a claim that Celtic wanted a fee which stalled any deal.

After an outstanding first season following his £4.5m transfer from Manchester City things have tailed off alarmingly for the midfielder.

It would seem highly unlikely that Ntcham will be involved under Ange Postecoglou but unless he can find a new club the 25-year-old may be forced to return to Lennoxtown for the remainder of his contract.
