Celtic are keen to make Artur Boruc's stay at Parkhead permanent.Celtic boss Gordon Strachan has revealed he is keen to make Artur Boruc's stay at Parkhead permanent.
The Polish international has impressed since arriving at the club in the summer and is now the club's first choice goalkeeper.
Boruc initially joined on a season-long loan from Legia Warsaw, but Strachan is hoping to keep him long-term.
"We'll be talking to Artur's representatives very soon and I don't see any reason why we shouldn't look to make it a permanent arrangement," Strachan told the club's official website.
"He's doing very well for us, he likes the club, and I think it helps that he has his pal, Maciej, around the place."
Boruc has also admitted he would like to stay at Celtic despite attracting interest from a host of other clubs.
"Celtic have first option on me and we will see what happens," said Boruc. "But I do want to stay.
"We've got good players here, we can develop this side and reach the Champions League next season.
"I can achieve my ambitions at Celtic. I want to stay playing for Celtic, if they want me."
Meanwhile, Celtic defender Stephen McManus is unsure over his future.
McManus has just one year to run on his contract and despite breaking into the side this season he is not sure if he will stay at the club.
"I was definitely thinking about leaving but I am just happy to be in the side just now, taking it game by game," said McManus.
"My contract's up in the summer but the more games you play the better it is for yourself from that point of view.
"But I am not going to rush into anything just now I am just taking it as it comes."
