Commons happy at Celtic despite Leicester transfer talk

Kris Commons insists he is completely settled at Celtic amid speculation regarding his future at the club.

The 30-year old midfielder has emerged as a target for Premier League returnees Leicester City, as well as other English clubs, but is intent on remaining at Parkhead for the foreseeable future.

Commons, who won this season's PFA Scotland Player of the Year award, is content in Glasgow but has sent a warning to the Scottish champions by making it clear that he has no plans on entering the final year of his contract without a plan in place.

"I've not got any aspirations about leaving," Commons told the Evening Times.

"I am not thinking about what's down the road, or what's elsewhere for me.

"I'm very comfortable here. I am happy, and my family is happy."

On his current contract, which expires this June but has a one-year extension clause, Commons added: "It's the last position I want to be in, going into the final 12 months or six months without any contact from the club about the future.

"I am hoping over the summer something will get arranged before I do enter the last 12 months of my contract.

"But I don't think it is my place to go in there begging for a contract. If they want to keep me, they have my number."
