Timothy Weah might have been slightly out of favour since Neil Lennon took over at the club, but the latest reports from the Scottish Sun indicates that the Hoops are keen to extend his loan spell in the summer. The Paris Saint Germain forward joined the club on a six-month deal. However, Celtic will face competition from Premier League club Bournemouth to sign the forward once again.

Weah has looked bright whenever he has been on the pitch. Not too long ago, the player himself indicated that he would be happy to sign for Celtic again on a loan spell. He was quoted as saying (Daily Record), ”I feel like it’s (another loan spell with Celtic) a possibility.”

”It’s something me and my family have to go over at the end of the season. I am loving it here so far, so we just have to see what happens. I’m really positive about the situation, happy to be at the club and making the most of these opportunities.”

How can Bournemouth create a problem for Celtic?

From Weah’s comments, it’s clear that he has settled in well at the club in Glasgow. However, the lure of the Premier League could be tough to ignore. Moreover, Bournemouth is a kind of club where he might get some decent opportunities as Eddie Howe has often been willing to trust and promote the youngsters.

PSG would also want him to play at a higher level so that the player can develop further and there cannot be any doubts that the Cherries have it in them to lure away Weah. Barring few games, Celtic more or less play in autopilot mode in the Premiership so the forward might choose the English club for his better overall development.

What works in Celtic’s favour?

The Hoops are more or less guaranteed to take up the Premiership title. Therefore Celtic can offer Weah a chance to play in European competition, and that can attract the youngster to Parkhead once again. Bournemouth already have some talented youngsters, and Weah might face more competition for places at the Vitality Stadium.

Celtic are going to lose some players in the summer because their contracts are expiring and Weah’s path to the first team could become more comfortable if someone like Oliver Burke or Scott Sinclair (both in the final few months of their contract) leave the club in the summer.

Why Celtic need him?

Weah has been impressive as an impact sub. Even when he has started, he has looked comfortable. His versatility, pace and finishing skills would come in handy, and it is no surprise that the Bhoys are keen on another loan spell for the American international.
