OLIVIER NTCHAM has revealed he is happy at Celtic following talk in the summer of a £15million bid from Portuguese giants Porto.

The French midfielder also insists he is improving as a player as the season develops.

Ntcham, 22, who cost £4.5million from Manchester City in the summer of 2017, said: “I just concentrate on my football.

“It’s my agent’s job to deal with all the talk about transfers while I just focus on my job. I am happy here and I am getting better as a player with every game.”

Ntcham, however, will miss the champions’ Premiership encounter with Dundee at Dens Park tomorrow night after limping off at the interval in Sunday’s 3-0 Betfred League Cup semi-final win over Hearts at Murrayfield.

He said: “I hope to be fit in time for next weekend when we play Hearts again. I am quite happy with how I have begun this season and I want to come back quickly.”

Ntcham has joined the list of walking wounded at the club such as Scott Brown, Leigh Griffiths, Jozo Simunovic, Eboue Kouassi, Youssouf Mulumbu, Cristian Gamboa and Nir Bitton.
