Scottish champions Celtic have completed the signing of striker Odsonne Edouard on a permanent four-year contract for a club record fee of £9m.

The 20-year-old spent last season on loan with Brendan Rodgers' side from PSG, scoring 11 goals in 29 appearances as the club secured a historic back-to-back domestic treble.

Fans' favourite Edouard scored twice as Celtic in the 5-0 thrashing of Rangers on the day the Hoops secured their seventh successive Premiership title at Celtic Park.

The Transfer Talk panel have the latest on the French forward's situation following claims he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Edouard told the club's website: "From the moment I walked into Celtic, the club has felt like home to me. I have been made to feel so welcome by everyone at the club and our fans have given me such brilliant support.

"Celtic is one of the world's great football clubs and I was desperate to make my move permanent. The scenes from May when we achieved such a historic double treble and made the city come alive are still very fresh in our memories.

"To see our fans so happy is the reason you play football and now we want to do everything we can to bring our great supporters even more success."
