Boruc threatens to buy out Celtic contract

The Sunday Mail says Parkhead keeper's current deal runs until the summer of 2009 and both parties have the option of a one year extension.

Boruc and Celtic recently held talks over a contract extension and it's understood the Pole's first choice would be to remain with the Hoops on an improved deal of around £25,000 per week.

Boruc said: "I'm waiting for the Celtic board to make me an offer. I'm happy at Celtic but things can change quickly in football."

If Boruc did decide to buy out his final year it would alert clubs such as AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Arsenal who are all admirers of the Celtic star.

Under article 17 in FIFA's guidelines a player over 23 can buy the remaining year of a four-year deal after he has completed three years of that term.

Or he can buy out the final two years if he is contracted for five.
