Coronavirus Complications in France holding up Celtic striker’s move

VAKOUN ISSOUF BAYO‘s move to Toulouse is being held up due to the news from France that the Ligue 2 manager tested positive for Coronavirus. Official announcement was expected from the French club with Bayo having already been pictured in the club’s colours. However, the news from the South of France is that the club have confirmed four positive cases – including the manager and assistant manager.

A Toulouse statement read that there would be further testing taking place with players that they believe may have been at risk of catching the virus.

“Up to now, four cases have been confirmed – the manager, Patrice Garande, his assistant, Jean-Marie Huriez and two players. Furthermore, seven players will be tested again this weekend.

“Training will resume later this week, led by other members of the coaching staff.”

Celtic are closing in on Albian Ajeti from West Ham United on a season-long loan, with the option to buy. Another name that has been mentioned is Steven Fletcher, who would probably appear more similar suited to the role that Bayo plays in.
