Feyenoord and German side Werder Bremen have both been credited with an interest in the big Dutchman.

However, Vennegoor of Hesselink has ruled out a move away from Glasgow saying he has set his sights on helping Celtic win their fourth SPL title in a row as well as another crack at the Uefa Champions League.

"Why would I want to leave? Let me make it clear I will be playing for Celtic next season," Vennegoor of Hesselink told The Sunday Mail.

"I know about stories linking me with other clubs but it is just speculation. I'm 29 now and used to rumours at this time of year.

"Celtic are guaranteed Champions League football next season and I want to be part of that.

"It is a fantastic stage to play on and I will not be walking away from that. I also want to try to help the club win another league title."
