The Wales international still has 18 months left to run on a deal agreed on his arrival at Parkhead in July 2010.

Ledley is, however, open to the idea of putting fresh terms in place. The 25-year-old is loving life in Scotland and believes he could not be at a better club at this stage of his career.

Fresh from helping Celtic to a famous 2-1 victory over Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, Ledley told the Daily Record: "There are talks going on. I have one more year after this season and hopefully I can stay.

"It's a fantastic club, I love playing for Celtic.

"Talks have started and I have spoken to my agent so hopefully something can happen.

"People are always going to criticise Scottish football for some reason. I think it's a fantastic league. To play in the Champions League is a huge honour too. It was a great move for me to sign for Celtic."

Ambition

Ledley is aware that some may have questioned his ambition when he left Cardiff City for Celtic as a free agent two years ago, but he hopes the success he has enjoyed in Glasgow has helped to silence those critics.

He added: "I could have maybe gone to a Premier League team and just sat in mid-table. I didn't want that.

"I like winning games, I want to win things and play in the best competition in the world, the Champions League."

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
