Socceroo Tom Rogic has moved to quash reports he will reject a new deal at Celtic and wants to leave the club.
There has been speculation in Scotland Rogic was set to reject a new contract with the Hoops.
English Championship club Leeds United made a play for Rogic during the January transfer window and were poised to make a $2 million offer for the classy playmaker.
But speaking with Celtic’s official website, Rogic pledged his future to the club and says he wants to remain at Parkhead.
“I know there was a story today suggesting that I want to leave Celtic. This is simply not the case at all,” the 23-year-old told the Celtic website.
“I am really enjoying my time at Celtic and I am proud to be part of such a great football club.
“I want to extend my contract with Celtic. I am speaking to the Club just now and hopefully this will be agreed very soon.”
Celtic boss Ronny Delia was asked about Rogic’s future at a press conference on Monday and said: "We are working to get that renewed.
“He's [Rogic] in our plans for the future.
"Talks haven't stopped at all, keeping on as normal."
Rogic has been at Celtic almost three years after signing from Hyundai A-League club Central Coast Mariners in 2013.
After an injury-plagued 18 months, the former Nike Chance winner has returned to his blistering best this season, scoring seven goals in all competitions.
Rogic has been out for the last few weeks with an ankle injury but should be right for the Socceroos two crucial FIFA World Cup qualifiers in March against Tajikistan and Jordan.
