Celtic star John Guidetti claims he will only decide his long-term future this summer

Celtic striker John Guidetti refused to be drawn over his future amid speculation of a move to Marseille.

After a stirring comeback against Inter Milan on Thursday night, Celtic were back in league action today, taking on Hamilton Academical at Celtic Park.

It may have been a difficult first half for Ronny Deila's men, but they were irresistible in the second period, scoring four times to restore their three point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Kris Commons notched a brace, Stefan Johansen got himself on the scoresheet yet again and John Guidetti showed more signs of recovery with another goal in the 4-0 victory.

The Swedish striker is currently on loan at Celtic Park from Manchester City, and hit 11 goals in his first 12 games to become a hero in Glasgow.

However, he then went ten games without a goal before his last minute equaliser against Inter - and his strike against Hamilton now makes it two in two games.

Celtic will be hoping that it's the start of another fine run of form, but reports from The Scotsman today suggested that French side Marseille were preparing a £60,000-per-week contract offer for Guidetti in a bid to land him on a free transfer this summer.

The 22-year-old can move for free at the end of this season when his Manchester City contract expires, and despite the speculation over his future, he told BBC reporter Chris McLaughlin after the Hamilton game [15:32] that he isn't in any rush to make a decision.

"I just want to stay focused on being here and going for all the trophies we can," he said. "We will see what happens at the end of the season."

Celtic are still in the running to sign Guidetti permanently, but if Marseille do make that £60,000-per-week offer, it's going to be hard to keep him out of their clutches.
