Report: Celtic's Tom Rogic delaying new contract, wants England move after Leeds' rejected approach

Celtic

Celtic star Tom Rogic has reportedly stalled contract talks with the club.

According to The Scottish Sun, Celtic's plans to extend Tom Rogic's contract have stalled - and he wants a move to England after Leeds had an approach rejected for him.

Rogic, 23, signed for Celtic back in 2013 having impressed in his native Australia with Central Coast Mariners, but endured a slow start to life in Glasgow.

Due to injuries, competition for places and a loan move back to Australia with Melbourne Victory, Rogic made just 15 appearances for the Bhoys in two-and-a-half years, with many writing him off.

However, Rogic has impressed this season, hitting seven goals in 29 appearances - a great contribution for an attacking midfielder - but questions remain over his future.

The Scottish Sun report that Celtic had hoped to agree a new contract with Rogic to extend his stay beyond 2017, when his current deal expires, but talks have now stalled, with manager Ronny Deila fearing that he will push to leave the club in the near future.

It's also stated that Leeds United had an approach for Rogic rejected in January, as manager Steve Evans looked to raid his boyhood club for an attacking midfielder, with Leeds desperately needing a real No. 10.

They may have renewed hope of signing Rogic this summer though, as The Scottish Sun report that Rogic is keen to make the move to England following the interest from Leeds, who will no doubt be paying close attention to the Australian international's ongoing transfer saga.

Should Celtic sell Rogic to Leeds this summer?
