Vakoun Bayo may not have much a future at Celtic this season, but he can still save his long-term Hoops tenure by making the right decision this month.
Earlier today, we brought you the news that the Ivorian forward wants to find a loan club for the rest of the season.
The Scottish Sun say that the 23-year-old is keen to get some minutes under his belt, with interest already shown from both Holland and Switzerland.
The report also states that the Brendan Rodgers signing has failed to rule out a move to another Premiership team, were the right offer to come in.
While the image of Bayo turning out for Livingston or St. Johnstone may be a little hard for some to fathom, a move like that could actually save his Celtic career.
If Bayo wants to make it at the club he will have to score some goals for us. What better way to get to grips with the Scottish league than playing in it for another side?
Bayo could benefit from taking a Celtic Park break
The forward has come in for some criticism since his move from Dunajska Streda this time last year.
Many supporters have already written him off as a dud signing – which seems a little big harsh given that he has still only started two games for the club.
On both of those occasions, he has been a big reason for us winning the match. He netted in the Betfred Cup win over Partick Thistle in September while he was extremely unfortunate not to score in our win over Hearts a month earlier.
Bayo clearly has something to offer and he can re-find that by moving to another Premiership club.
The likes of Hearts and Kilmarnock could surely do with some extra help up front – and they could certainly benefit from having a player like Bayo.
If Bayo’s looking for the benefits of moving out on loan to another Scottish side, he need only ask Kristoffer Ajer or Ryan Christie.
The Hoops first-team pair benefitted massively from their spells with smaller clubs. Bayo really could do likewise.
