Ntcham wants to leave Celtic for Marseille

Olivier Ntcham says he wants to leave Celtic this summer as he feels he can't progress any further in Scottish football. 

The French under-21 international midfielder has a number of potential suitors with Ligue 1 side Marseille reportedly leading the chase for his signature.

He joined Celtic in 2017, making 49 appearances for the treble-treble winners, and signed a contract last year through to the summer of 2022

Ntcham stayed at Parkhead last summer despite interest from Porto but he believes the time has come to move on from the Hoops.

“Celtic have given me a lot, but it’s the best solution for my development,” former Manchester City player Ntcham told L’Equipe.

"Games came one after another but with respect to my opponents, if the level isn’t high, you don’t progress. I was really disappointed not to have gone to Porto last summer.

"What could be the perfect stage for me? A big championship: Germany, France, Spain - coming back to France would be something very, very good,"

“I was disappointed I didn’t go to Porto last summer, the interest of Marseille is flattering. It is a very big club with very big support. If I went to Marseille I would blossom.”
