Lennon insists Celtic will fight off Leicester, Crystal Palace interest in Edouard

Neil Lennon says Celtic will try and 'stave off any admirers' of striker Odsonne Edouard.

The Frenchman scored a hat-trick in Sunday's 5-1 win over Hamilton Academical.

Crystal Palace and Leicester are just some of the clubs who have been monitoring Edouard, but Lennon insists Celtic will do everything to keep him at Parkhead.

"You can't help the attention. It is inevitable," he said.

"But we will try to stave off any admirers. I am sure there is plenty out there.

"We love having him here and he enjoys being here. He will be well on the radar of clubs before this season.

"He got 27 goals until March last year and I was delighted with that goal return. He has the potential to be anything he wants to be."
