Celtic loanee Filip Benkovic has said that he would like to stay at the club for the remainder of the season, rather than returning to parent club Leicester City.
The 21-year-old was sent immediately out on loan to the Scottish side after joining Leicester from Dinamo Zagreb in a £13m deal four months ago.
City have a recall option that kicks in next month, but Benkovic - used 14 times in all competitions since joining in the summer window - hopes to remain at Parkhead beyond the end of January.
"For me, my wish is to stay for the whole season here because I came here to get trophies and to be part of it and to help the team," he told reporters at a press conference on Wednesday.
Benkovic is part of Celtic's squad for their make-or-break Europa League clash with Red Bull Salzburg on Thursday.
