Chelsea attacker Charly Musonda will remain at Celtic next season despite making just two starts since moving to Parkhead in January, according to a report.

Football.London claims that unless there is any kind of issue behind the scenes then Musonda, 21, is expected to see out his 18-month loan deal with the Glasgow giants after concerns that he will have his deal torn up in the summer.

Sky Sports pundit David Provan has previously tipped the Belgium Under-21 international to exit Celtic Park over the coming months with him barely making an impact in Brendan Rodgers squad.

Musonda, who HLN report is earning £40,000-a-week from his deal at Chelsea, has made just eight appearances in all competitions and has featured for just four minutes in the Scottish Premiership since mid-February.

Football.London adds that Musonda’s position at Celtic is strengthened by the fact that other attacking midfielders, like Tom Rogic, are yet to commit their future to the club.

Football Insider verdict

Musonda’s loan deal has been surprising. Celtic have not been playing as well this season as they did last time out and everyone had it in their heads that Musonda would be snapped up to help sort that out. However with the season almost over, the Chelsea ace has barely kicked a ball. Rodgers did not exactly need an attacking midfielder when he signed the Belgian in January, especially when the defence is the clear weak-point of this side, but as this report says, people like Rogic and Stuart Armstrong could leave in the summer and that may open up a chance for Musonda to impress.

In other Celtic news, the Hoops are likely to sign this Premier League playmaker in the summer, but he is a lifelong Rangers fan.
