Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham has moved to Ligue 1 side Marseille on loan.

The Frenchman has returned to his homeland on a deal lasting until the end of the current season.

Ntcham has been consistently linked with other clubs in recent transfer windows and failed to earn a regular starting place in Neil Lennon’s side.

The 24-year-old, who had joined Celtic from Manchester City in 2017, is under contract with the Glasgow club until 2022, having signed a contract extension a year after arriving in Scotland.
