Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen has suggested to The Daily Record that he will remain at the club next season.
Johansen has been on the books of Celtic since January 2014 and has a contract until June 2017.
The 25-year-old Norway international has revealed that he has held talks with new Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers about his future, and that the discussion has been positive.
Johansen has also backed his compatriot Kristoffer Ajer to be a success at Celtic. Ajer, who is just 18 years of age and plays as a midfielder, is set to join the Scottish Premiership outfit on a four-year contract this summer.
“Yes, I felt wanted but I have to prove myself in pre-season – we all do as we have a new coach,” Johansen told The Daily Record when asked whether he got the impression Rodgers wanted to keep him at Celtic.
“He is a real talent but like everyone else he must prove himself to the new manager,” added Johansen about Ajer.
Johansen did not have a great 2015-16 campaign for Celtic on a personal level, but he is a very good midfielder.
Celtic fans should be encouraged by the Norwegian’s comments about his future and about the prospect of Ajer.
