Leicester, Bournemouth target commits to long-term Celtic contract

Date published: Wednesday 6th November 2019 11:04

Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor has signed a new five-year contract.

The Scottish champions rebuffed interest from Leicester in the Scotland international towards the end of the summer transfer window and have moved to tie him down until at least the summer of 2024 – his second new deal in 12 months at Celtic Park.

Bournemouth have also been credited with an interest in the player in the past.

A club statement read: “Celtic are delighted to announce that Callum McGregor has signed a new five-year contract that will see him remain at the club until at least the summer of 2024.”

A Hoops academy graduate, McGregor made his debut in 2014 and has scored 55 goals in 290 appearances.

The 26-year-old, who has played 17 times for his country, has won five Ladbrokes Premiership titles, three Scottish Cups and three League Cups at Celtic.

McGregor is the third player to commit himself to Celtic in a week after the club also recently tied down Martin Bain and James Forrest.
