Beram Kayal is set to resist Premier League interest to pen a new deal with Celtic.

The Telegraph says the Israeli is set to sign a new extended deal that will contract him to the Parkhead club until June 2015.

Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers are interested in Kayal but an Israeli source close to the player said on Sunday night: "Beral wants to know what the future is likely to hold and he has not perhaps been at his best for either Celtic or Israel recently, but his talks with the club have been encouraging and it looks as though a deal is now very close."
