Celtic manager Ronny Deila has declared Socceroos midfielder Tom Rogic will stay at the Scottish Premiership club amid interest from Leeds United.
Deila confirmed on Wednesday that Celtic are looking to re-sign Rogic and the Norwegian coach expects the 23-year-old Australian to "get much better" if he stays in Glasgow.
There have been widespread reports in the British media that Championship outfit Leeds want to sign Rogic.
The former Central Coast Mariners playmaker has shone for Celtic this season - scoring five goals and creating four others in 18 league matches.
"We want to re-sign Tom Rogic and have him here at the club for the future," Deila told reporters at his media conference.
"He has made great progress and we see a lot of potential in him. He can get much better because he has only played for six months and been out for a year before that.
"He needs time and he's going to stay here at Celtic.
"He has to be happy. He was very frustrated last year going around injured but we told him that we believed in him and we would give him another chance.
"He has come in and shown his quality. But he still has things to work on to reach his full potential."
Rogic has played 27 matches for Celtic in all competitions this season.
In his previous three seasons with the Bhoys, Rogic played just 15 games mainly due to a string of injuries.
