Celtic announce that midfielder Stuart Armstrong - who had allegedly been interesting clubs in the Premier League - has signed a new two-year contract.

Celtic have announced that midfielder Stuart Armstrong has signed a new two-year contract.

Over the summer, Armstrong has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Swansea City said to have been keen on the Scottish international after selling Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton.

The 25-year-old had less than a year remaining on his existing deal, but the Glasgow giants have revealed that terms have been agreed on a contract which will run until 2019.

Armstrong told Celtic's official website: "I am delighted to sign this new contract with Celtic. I have had a tremendous time at the club so far and it has been a period in my footballing career which I have enjoyed immensely.

"It has been an honour to play for a club of such stature. I have enjoyed a great relationship with our supporters and we have achieved a high level of success, something it has been great to be part of.

"I'm pleased that this new contract has been agreed and I am now looking forward very much to working with the manager, our staff and my team-mates to bring the club and our fans even more success."

Since signing for Celtic in January 2015, Armstrong has netted 25 goals in 121 appearances in all competitions.
