Charly Musonda’s 18-month loan spell at Celtic looks to have come to an end already.

The Belgian youngster returned to London earlier this month for treatment on a shoulder injury and, according to Goal, it is unlikely that he will ever be back in Glasgow.

Musonda only started two Scottish Premiership games since moving to Celtic in January and the report states that Chelsea are very unhappy with his lack of game time north of the border.

It is understood that they will cut his loan spell short by 12 months and look to send Musonda out to another club in the summer, preferably one that will give him the minutes he needs to blossom into the exceptional talent they believe he can be at Stamford Bridge.

And Celtic fans are far from happy to see the back of this fleet-footed 21-year-old.

Musonda might have been lightweight, inexperienced and a little erratic at times but it only took a few little shimmies or flashes of quality - such as that glorious assist against Zenit in the Europa League - to see just what a huge talent this fresh-faced winger really is.

Celtic supporters had expressed their frustration with manager Brendan Rodgers for his apparent refusal to give Musonda a chance. And his impending exit may drive a bit of a wedge between manager and fans.
