Celtic set to offer Tom Rogic new deal to fend off suitors


Celtic are set to offer Tom Rogic a new deal to keep the Aussie at Parkhead with a number of potential suitors in the wings – including Leeds United.

The 23-year-old, who was on loan to Melbourne Victory for part of last season, has become a first team regular this season under Ronny Deila playing 26 times in all competitions scoring six times.

The Aussie international’s form for Celtic has attracted a number of clubs south of the border – including Leeds United – but with the former Nike Academy player’s contract expiring at the end of next season Celtic are looking to move quickly to sign him up to a long-term deal.

Rogic’s agent, Daniel Berman, confirmed to Football magazine Four Four Two that his client wants to stay at Celtic. He said: “It is correct that we have been in negotiations to extend Tom’s current deal, and hope to agree something in the near future.

“Tom is very proud to wear the Celtic shirt and understands what it means to represent the club. Having played regularly this season, he is becoming increasingly influential, and is fully committed to helping the team achieve its goals domestically and in Europe.”

Rogic joined Celtic in January 2013 from Central Coast Mariners in a four and half year deal worth around £400,000.
