Olivier Ntcham has signed a new deal with Celtic to keep him at Parkhead until 2022, the Scottish Premiership champions have confirmed.

The midfielder signed from Genoa in the summer of 2017, making 68 appearances for the Hoops and since becoming an integral member of Brendan Rodgers’ side.

He has scored 14 goals, including a stunner against Motherwell at Hampden last season to help secure the club’s historic Double Treble.

“I’m delighted to extend my contract,” the 22-year-old told Celtic TV. “It’s good news and I hope we’re going to win more trophies. It’s a great side and I’m glad to be part of the project.

“Having a strong bond with the players is very important for the team, and for the club.

“I feel good here and I hope we’re going to win more trophies and that we can be even more successful this year than last year.

“I want to improve on everything in respect of the game. Scoring more goals is, of course, part of the game and is important for me as well.”

Ntcham left Le Havre for Manchester City in 2012 for £1million. Three years later, he signed a five-year deal with the Citizens before joining Genoa on a two-year loan deal.
