Celtic's Balde cool on Sunderland, Birmingham interest

Bobo Balde insists he will only leave Celtic for a top club after being linked with English Premiership strugglers.

Bolton dropped their interest last week while Sunderland and Birmingham are also said to be in the hunt for the giant defender.

He said: "I'm content at Celtic but I'd like more playing time. Will I leave in January? That's up to Celtic. I would only accept it if it was a club at a good level.

"I have seen the stories about interest from English Premiership clubs but I have honestly never spoken directly with any of them."
