Joe Ledley is hoping the majority of his Celtic teammates stay at the club this summer.
A number of Hoops stars including Victor Wanyama, Gary Hooper and Fraser Forster have all been linked with a Parkhead exit but Welshman Ledley is hoping they stay so the club can kick on, especially in the Champions League.
"Our main aim is to qualify for Europe as we all enjoyed playing in the Champions League so much," Ledley told Sky Sports.
"We all enjoyed playing in Europe last season in some fantastic games and we want the same again next season.
"Hopefully the gaffer can keep hold of our best players and bring players in to make us better.
"We know it is going to be difficult with the teams who we can play in the qualifying rounds.
"We need to be up for it and that is why we have come back early so we can be fit and ready for it."
