Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal insists he wants to stay at Parkhead for the long term following his impressive recent form for the SPL leaders.
Kayal joined the Bhoys on a four-year contract from Maccabi Haifa last summer and saw his first half to the season wrecked by a hernia injury.
However, since returning to full fitness, the Israeli has caught the eye and he was named the SPL's Player of the Month for January.
His performances of late have reportedly attracted the attention of English Premier League clubs, with Manchester United rumoured to have been impressed.
The 22-year-old, though, has shrugged off the speculation about his future and wants to be a long-term part of Neil Lennon's plans at Celtic.
"I am here and happy at Celtic," said Kayal. "I have a contract and I want to stay here.
"I feel really at home. I could play here for the next five or six years with the manager."
