Celtic boss Neil Lennon is supremely confident that Joe Ledley will sign a new deal with the club.

The Welsh midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and the Bhoys are determined to tie him down to a fresh deal this month.

Celtic brought in Norwegian midfielder Stefan Johansen this week but Lennon insists the 23-year old has not been brought in as replacement for Ledley.

"Not at all," said Lennon regarding Johansen arriving from Stromsgodset to step into Ledley's role.

"All the signs from Joe are positive. I haven't spoken to his agent for a week or two, but that one could get done."
