Celtic Want Away Olivier Ntcham has this evening agreed personal terms with AEK Athens, according to the respected Greek Sportswriter Giannis Chorianopoulos, who is Editor in Chief at Sportime newspaper and broke the news last year that Vasilis Barkas was leaving AEK to sign for Celtic.
It appears that Celtic have indeed released Ntcham from his contract at the club after his loan move to Marseille proved to be eventful but ultimately unsuccessful. The French midfielder, a £4.5m signing from Manchester City, has made it clear that he is unhappy in Scotland and wants a transfer and it looks like he’s going to get his way this time as AEK Athens agree a deal.

Olivier Ntcham seems to look like the summer “bomb” that AEK wants to activate.
Olivier Ntcham, of course, must be released from Celtic to go to the next stage of his career. AEK, however, is waiting with open arms. That is, he has agreed almost everything with the 25-year-old French midfielder and expects their freedom from the “Celts” to proceed to the… officially.
Ntcham sees with a very good eye the perspective of AEK and has received strong pressure from Panagiotis Kone lately to be convinced. At the age of 25 and after a very bad semester in Marseille, he is looking for a new beginning with the “yellow-blacks” giving him the opportunity to restart. Essentially, this is a 6-inch with creative virtues that AEK is eagerly looking for as a reference point in its axis. Dynamic and explosive medium that will hardly lose a duel one on one and with constant movement in space.
For all this the Union decided to pay a lot of money. Close to 1 million euros is Enzham’s annual contract, while the management of the “yellow-blacks” offers him very strong personal bonuses as well as a signing bonus, while a large amount concerns his managers.
Dimitris Melissanidis was convinced of how important a transfer the 25-year-old French midfielder is and that is why he decided to invest a lot in him. Besides, this year’s transfers of AEK are aimed at quality and personality. And Ntcham is a great example.
