SAINTS loanee Moi Elyounoussi says committing to another season at Celtic was an "easy choice".

The Norwegian international spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan in Scotland and has agreed to another season-long deal.

Elyounoussi got off to a quick start before an injury halted his progress and limiting him to just 20 appearances, although he managed to score seven times.

Explaining why he's agreed to another year on loan, the 25-year-old told Celtic TV: “I’m very happy.

“It’s a proud moment for myself and my family. We’re very happy in Glasgow. I enjoyed my first year here.

"I enjoy working with the coaching staff and the players, everyone at the club, so it was an easy choice really.

“Since the league stopped, I got a lot of positive messages from fans.

"They told me what they thought about me, and for me to take another year, and I have to say, that made the choice even easier.

“It’s hard to say no when you get so many messages and feedback – love from the fans, and obviously I will try to give something back. The fans, of course, are one of the reasons why I’m staying here another year.”

Part of Elyounoussi's decision to stay also focused on the chance to help Celtic seal an unprecedented 10th league title in a row.

Even though their 2019/20 season ended prematurely, Saints' loanee remained north of the border, along with Fraser Forster, to continue training with the Scottish champions.

And Elyounoussi, who cost the St Mary's side £16million in 2018, is determined to let his quality do the talking during the 2020/21 campaign.

“It’s maybe one of the biggest seasons in the history of Celtic, so no pressure!” he continued.

“But we’re looking forward to it. We’ve been working really hard and I’m sure all the other teams in the league have been working hard to try to stop us.

"But we’re going to give everything. I hope that we can play the games with our fans as soon as possible, because with their help, hopefully we can achieve something great.

“The winning mentality is still there, even if it is just a passing drill, or when we start playing games in training.

"Everyone wants to win all the time, and that’s going to help us hopefully achieve our goals.

“Obviously, the injury stopped everything for me, so I will try to give even more from myself this year.

“In the end, I just want to talk with my feet."
