Eboue Kouassi seems like a bit of a forgotten player at Celtic.

He signed for a big-money fee last January – £3million from Krasnodar – the Ivorian has struggled to adapt to playing in Scotland.

Firstly he was diagnosed with a bout of malaria then in a match against Kilmarnock at the start of this season he suffered an ankle injury which kept him out of the side for two months.

The player is fully-fit again but in recent weeks hasn’t even managed to make the first-team squad for games.

Leaving the club on-loan could give him the edge that he needs to make a mark in the Hoops first-team.

The player needs a run of games, and he isn’t going to displace the likes of Scott Brown or Olivier Ntcham in the middle of the park.

Not only would a loan-move be beneficial for the player, but it would also help the club in gauging how much progress he made at the club.

He is only 20-years-old, so he is a player for the future, but that hasn’t stopped the likes of Kieran Tierney from making their mark in the Celtic first-team.

A move to a team in the Scottish Premiership can benefit Kouassi the same way it benefited Kristoffer Ajer, who now looks to be a mainstay in the Bhoys first-team after a season with Kilmarnock.

In other Celtic news, Charlie Nicholas believes that if offered a high-enough bid the Hoops should sell Moussa Dembele
