Olivier Ntcham has signed a new four-year deal which will see him remain at Celtic until at least the summer of 2022.

The 22-year-old French midfielder joined the Hoops in July last year from Manchester City, after a loan spell at Genoa.

Ntcham’s strike in last season’s 2-0 William Hill Scottish Cup final win over Motherwell helped secure the historic double treble and after signing his new deal, he told Celtic TV: “I’m delighted to extend my contract.

“It’s good news and I hope we’re going to win more trophies. It’s a great side and I’m glad to be part of the project.

“Having a strong bond with the players is very important for the team, and for the club. I feel good here and I hope we’re going to win more trophies and that we can be even more successful this year than last year.”
