Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers reveals that he is in "no rush" to complete a permanent deal for Paris Saint-Germain forward Odsonne Edouard.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that he has been impressed with the performances of Odsonne Edouard, but remains in no rush to sign the forward on a permanent deal.

Edouard is currently on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain, and has scored four goals in 13 appearances in all competitions.

Rodgers has acknowledged that the 19-year-old is in his thoughts for next season, but will not make any fast decisions regarding the future of the Frenchman.

The 44-year-old told reporters: "I will assess it at the end of the season. I have been really impressed by him and he is getting better and better each week.

"The boy has big talent and is a real worker as well. He works very hard for the team and he's the type of performer I like. His English is getting better through lessons and he's still only very young. He has a lot of potential there.

"He has grown each week he has been with us. It's a case of assessing it. There's no rush. It's for both sides as well: he might love it with us; he might not. I know he is really enjoying it but there is no rush to commit on either side now."

Edouard is currently competing with Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths for a place in the starting lineup.
