Aleksandar Tonev: Lech Poznan winger would be interested in joining Celtic

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.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
