Report: Leeds unlikely to sign Tom Rogic as Celtic will reject any approach

Celtic Parkhead

Celtic are unlikely to sell Tom Rogic to Leeds, according to reports.

According to TEAMtalk, Celtic will reject any approach from Leeds United to sign their playmaker Tom Rogic during this month's transfer window.

Rogic, 23, joined Celtic back in January 2013 having impressed in his native Australia with Central Coast Mariners, but he struggled to make an impact in Scotland.

The unwanted combination of few appearances and plenty of injuries meant that Rogic was loaned out to Melbourne Victory in 2014, before another injury-hit campaign last term.

However, Rogic has burst into life this season, hitting six goals in 25 appearances to become one of the surprises of the season for Ronny Deila's Bhoys.

With just 18 months left on his contract, The Scottish Sun recently reported that Celtic were hoping to extend his deal after learning of interest from English clubs - and that became clear on Monday.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported on Monday that Leeds United were keen to sign Rogic, with manager Steve Evans weighing up a £1m swoop for the playmaker.

However, TEAMtalk today suggest that Celtic are determined to keep Rogic at Celtic Park, and will reject any approach from Leeds to sign him this month, especially as their own valuation of the player far exceeds the suggested £1m from Leeds.

With Celtic's position over any potential deal abundantly clear, Leeds may have to turn their attention elsewhere and look for other targets - or offer an astronomical fee for the midfielder.
