West Bromwich Albion have been linked with Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong in the summer transfer window.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has suggested to The Scottish Sun that he is confident that Stuart Armstrong will sign a new contract with the club.

Armstrong has been on the books of Celtic since 2015 and has a contract with the Scottish giants until June 2018, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

The Scotland international midfielder enjoyed a brilliant season with the Bhoys in 2016-17, as he helped them win the Scottish Premiership, the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup.

Celtic manager Rodgers has suggested that he is confident that the former Dundee United star will put pen to paper on a new deal with the Hoops, and has stated that he wants him in his team for the 2017-18 campaign.

“Stuart had a brilliant campaign, he came on great strides last season,” Rodgers told The Scottish Sun about Armstrong.

“Contracts are always about length of time or finances, but I am pretty confident the club and the agent will come to an agreement.

“Stuart is happy here in this environment and he knows he is improving and developing so let’s wait and see. He’s someone I’m keen to keep.”

Armstrong is one of the best midfielders in the Scottish Premiership, and the 25-year-old’s performances last season suggest that he can be a long-term success at Celtic.

It would make sense for the Hoops to hand the Scotsman a new deal, especially as he has been linked with a move away from Celtic Park in the summer transfer window.

The Express reported last month that Premier League trio West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion want to sign Armstrong.

It was reported that West Brom would be open to paying £8 million as transfer fee for the midfielder and a salary over £30,000 per week to the Scotsman.
