Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has rubbished claims he wants to leave the club and is instead keen to extend his stay at Parkhead.

Reports over recent days had suggested the Australia international had turned down a new deal and was seeking a switch away from Celtic Park.

The 23-year-old has now moved to dismiss such claims and has confirmed he is currently negotiating a new contract.

Rogic said: “I know there was a story today suggesting that I want to leave Celtic. This is simply not the case at all. 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.”

Rogic, who originally joined the Hoops from Central Coast Mariners in January 2013, has impressed so far this season, scoring six goals in 21 Scottish Premiership appearances.

The attacking midfielder has missed the club’s last two matches due to an ankle complaint but could return for Wednesday night’s home clash with Dundee.

Celtic are currently six points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership and are available at 1.17 to secure all three points at Celtic Park, while the Dark Blues are 17.00 and the draw is 7.50.
