Celtic midfielder Eboue Kouassi has recently completed a loan move to Genk. The Hoops player joined the Belgian side until the end of the season, as confirmed by the Hoops website.

Kouassi has failed to make the breakthrough since moving to the Hoops three years ago, so it is not much of a surprise that he is on the move.

The Daily Record reports that the loan deal has the option to be made permanent at the end of the season, so we may have seen the last of Kouassi in a Celtic jersey.

Some Celtic fans on social media have been commenting on the news that the player has left the club.

One fan wished him ‘all the best’ whilst another was hopeful that he would return to Celtic next season and ‘come back a player’.

Here are some of the best reactions to Kouassi’s exit from social media:

 

What is most interesting about the comments from the Hoops support is that so many fans seem to think that he still has a future at the club.

Perhaps unlikely to return to club

That is perhaps more in hope than anything else. With the lack of games he has played, it doesn’t seem that likely that he will feature for the Hoops should he return to the club at the end of the season.

Still, that will be up to Neil Lennon, Genk and the player to decide. Should he do well in Belgium Celtic might want the player to return to the club, but at the moment, it looks like his time with the Hoops will be coming to an end.
