Darren O'Dea admits it would much easier for Celtic to tell him they don't need him so he can get on with his career.

The Republic of Ireland defender enjoyed a season-long loan with Leeds United, who did not offer him a permanent deal, and is now keen to find out his Celtic fate as soon as possible.

"Nothing is happening because I've to wait for (Celtic chief executive) Peter Lawwell to make up his mind," said O'Dea.

"He's told me I will get a letter in the post.

"If he thinks he will let me go, then that is better for me. Ideally in my world it makes sense just to let me go and I will look after myself."
