's decision to depart from the Hoops. However, the destination club has not been named yet.

Lennon talked about the 20-year-old's decision and said:

“Jeremie is abroad at the minute speaking to a club. That deal looks like it may go through.

“This hasn’t appeared in the last couple of days, this has been in the background for the last six or seven weeks.

“The club have made great strides to renegotiate with Jeremie and his representatives but the player made it clear to me, to the board, that he wanted to leave.

“I wouldn’t say he was unhappy, just ambitious maybe or he wanted to try something else to progress his career at another club.

“We got a really robust offer from a club for Jeremie and the club felt it was good business. We do as well from a football side of things and when the player makes it clear he would prefer to play his football elsewhere, that was a decision we all agreed to take.

“That’s football sometimes, when a player makes it clear that he would prefer to go elsewhere then you have to look at it and think is this the right thing to do, is this the right sort of deal for us and ticks all the boxes really.

Lennon expressed his disappointment in losing the right-back defender and said that he does not want any other player to get out of the club before the January transfer window closes. He said:

“Negotiations are ongoing at the minute and will see how that pans out, but I don’t envisage anyone else going out the door.

“We are obviously disappointed, we did everything we could to try and entice the player to stay but he made it clear quite a while ago that his ambition was to leave.”
