Celtic complete deal for Ntcham

Wednesday 12th July 2017

Celtic have completed the signing of France U21 midfielder Olivier Ntcham on a four-year contract from Manchester City.

The former Le Havre player has spent the last couple of seasons on loan at Genoa in Italy and now makes the move to Parkhead.

Ntcham is Brendan Rodgers' third new recruit this summer, following the arrivals of Jonny Hayes (Aberdeen) and Kundai Benyu (Ipswich Town).

He told the club website: “It was Brendan Rodgers who got me to come here. I had a lot of clubs in Italy like Lazio, Torino and Inter who were interested but when I spoke to Brendan I decided to come here. I liked the philosophy as he always wants to play with the ball, and this is the way I like to play."
