Bahebeck signs new PSG deal; Guidetti happy with Celtic move

Paris Saint-Germain forward Jean-Christophe Bahebeck has put pen to paper on a new four-year contract at the Parc des Princes.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Jean-Christophe Bahebeck has put pen to paper on a new four-year contract at the Parc des Princes.

Since graduating from the Club’s youth academy, the France Under-21 international, has gone on to score three goals in 31 appearances for Les Parisiennes.

“I am very happy to be continuing with my club. Paris Saint-Germain is the perfect place to learn and progress alongside world-class players,” Bahebeck told the Club’s official website.

“I will do everything I can to help construct this magnificent project.”

Meanwhile, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: “We want to show our confidence in our young players that have come through the ranks of our youth academy.

“We are very proud that Jean-Christophe Bahebeck is signing up to become a long-term element of our project. He represents the future of Paris Saint-Germain.”

Bahebeck scored two goals for champions France at the 2013 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.

Guidetti happy with Celtic move

Sweden international striker John Guidetti is looking forward to impressing while on loan at Celtic F.C. this season.

Guidetti, who joined Celtic on loan from Manchester City earlier this month, has suffered several injuries since earning significant interest following a successful loan spell at Feyenoord in 2011/12.

Although the 22-year-old has played very little over the past two seasons, there was no shortage of interest in him this summer.

“I am happy I’ll now have the chance to show what I can do in Scotland,” Guidetti told Heja Sverige.

“AIK Stockholm made an approach for me in August, but then Celtic asked for me, as did Olympiakos, Ajax, Fiorentina and Palermo.

“AIK are perhaps the biggest club in Sweden but with all due respect to them they aren’t as big as those other clubs.”

Guidetti had no interest in sitting on the bench at Manchester City, and rightly so.

Like James Milner, he deserves to play, but is simply not good enough to feature ahead of the likes of Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero, and Stevan Jovetic.

Now then, the only unfortunate element of this deal (for Guidetti) is that Celtic failed to reach the group stages of the UEFA Champions League this season.

Impressing on the European stage could have jump-started Guidetti’s career, but he will now have to settle for galvanizing the Scottish Premier League in order to seal a permanent move away from the Etihad Stadium in the not-so-distant future.

Will Guidetti prove to be a good signing for Celtic this season?
