He played regularly in his first two seasons but made just 17 appearances in the English Premier League last season and fell down the pecking order.

Celtic would be seeking to sign him on a loan deal, but Ibe insists the story is purely “speculation”.

He told the Daily Mirror: “That Celtic thing, I don’t know about that.

“Any speculation stuff I don’t get involved with.”
