The Bulgaria international has regularly been linked with a move to Celtic, and is also reportedly a target of Italian duo Fiorentina and Lazio.

However, the 23-year-old is prepared to reject the opportunity to head to Serie A in favour of playing regular UEFA Champions League football at Parkhead.

"It's an honour to know Celtic are interested in me," Tonev told the Daily Record.

"They have a big history and their performance in Europe this year has shown they are ready to create new history.

"Last summer there were Italian teams interested and even though Serie A is one of the top leagues it's important for me I consistently play Champions League football. Celtic is somewhere I could achieve that.

"I just concentrate on playing. Hopefully a move can be organised this summer."

Tonev still has two seasons to run on his contract but reports suggest Lech would accept an offer in the region of £2m.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
