Celtic striker travels to France ahead of medical with Ligue 2 side Toulouse

BAYO is set to leave Celtic after a deal was agreed with Ligue 2 side Toulouse to take the Ivorian striker to the French club. French publication La Depeche du Midi is saying that he is traveling to France to complete a medical ahead of a move.

It is unclear at this stage but it appears as if it is a permanent deal with the fee of £500k suggested. Celtic are in the market for a replacement with Ajeti and Fletcher heavily touted to join the club.

For one reason or another, Bayo has been unable to make a breakthrough since joining the club. Injuries have hampered his progress with the 23-year-old currently returning to fitness after a knock.

A dubious red card in the Europa League curtailed the progress that he had made to get into Neil Lennon’s reckoning before an injury ruled him out until after the winter break. Bayo was signed in January 2019, meaning he has been at Celtic for over a year already, yet has managed just 16 appearances. In that time he has scored twice (4 time if we include those that were given as own goals but are disputable) in his 364 minutes of action.
