Beram Kayal has warned Celtic to treat him at 'the level he deserves' if they want him to remain at Parkhead next season.
The Israeli star has turned heads with his performances for the Hoops since arriving from Maccabi Haifa last year and has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer.
Kayal, who is under contract until 2014, has confirmed he wants to stay at Celtic but claims he has not been offered an improved deal.
And the 23-year-old says he wants to feel wanted and valued by the club's hierarchy if he is to remain a Hoops player next term.
Kayal said in the Daily Record: "It is very important to play for who wants you most.
"I am not the man to make these decisions. I just concentrate on doing my job on the pitch for my team and manager. It's all about playing football for me in the right place where I enjoy it.
"I enjoy it at Celtic and I want to stay but who knows what might happen in the next few weeks?
"These discussions are nothing to do with me. It's a question for the people who are in charge and it will depend on them.
"I like Celtic, I like the fans, I like the manager and I would be very happy to keep playing for the club.
"But they must treat me at the level I deserve."
Kayal's uncle Hamoudi Kayal, who acts as his adviser, last night confirmed there has been no advance on talks with clubs south of the border.
He said: "At the moment nothing has changed.
"We respect the people we are dealing with and will wait to hear from them.
"We will also not be doing our business in public and will continue with the work behind closed doors."
