Celtic midfielder Kris Commons admits that he is keen to extend his stay with the Scottish champions.

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons has revealed that he is eager to sign a new contract with the club.

The 30-year-old, who is entering the final year of his current deal, played a key part in the team winning a third consecutive Scottish Premiership title last season.

Commons was rewarded for his efforts on the pitch by being named both the PFA Scotland and Scottish Football Writers' Player of the Year.

"When you get four or five months into the last year of your contract you can talk to other clubs, but that's something I don't want to do. I want my future sorted here," he told Sky Sports News.

"I have no desire to go back to England. I'm playing the peak years of my career at one of the world's biggest clubs.

"With Champions League football, there's no better place to be than Celtic. I'd like to finish my career here. There's nothing down the road that would entertain me."

Commons joined Celtic in 2011 following a three-year spell with Derby County.
