Celtic look set to smash their transfer record with the capture of Odsonne Edouard on a permanent deal for £9m.

Edouard spent last season on loan at Celtic, helping Brendan Rodgers' side to a historic successive domestic treble.

Scotland understand the French side are looking for a fee in excess of £8m.

Celtic's record outlay is the £6m paid for both Chris Sutton and John Hartson in 2000 and 2001, respectively.

The 20-year-old forward scored 11 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions, including two strikes in the 5-0 win over Rangers.

"He is one of the best young players I have worked with - his movement, his touch, his all-round play", Rodgers said back in March.

However, his season was curtailed by a hamstring injury which forced him to miss the club's Scottish Cup final success.

PSG have been told that they need to bring in £52 million in the next month by UEFA to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
