Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard would be a good signing for West Ham and David Moyes will get the best out of him once again.

That is the view of ex-England and Premier League defender Danny Mills, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the future of the Hoops striker who looks set to quit Parkhead this summer.

Football Insider revealed last week the Hammers had climbed into pole position to secure the 23-year-old after Leicester City reassessed their options after Kelechi Ihenacho’s form.

Chairman David Sullivan has now instructed agents to work on the signing of Edouard as he hopes to steal a march on their rivals.

The Frenchman has had a disastrous campaign in Glasgow but is still the Scottish Premierships top scorer with 16 goals.

And Mills has backed Moyes to get the best of him in east London.

He told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “They need quality.

“They’re not going to push the boat out and spend £100million on a centre-forward. They’ve had their fingers burnt before on some poor signings.

“It’s up to David Moyes to do what he did at Everton and bring in players from the second or third tier of signings and work with them, improve them, make them integrate into the team and make it work.

“David Moyes has been brilliant at that over the years.”


Edouard has scored 20 times in 36 appearances across all competitions for Celtic this season.

In total, he has 81 goals and 37 assists 164 games across his near four seasons with the Glasgow giants.
