Beram Kayal has implored Celtic to treat him "at a level he deserves" in order to fend off interest from English Premier League clubs.

The Israel midfielder impressed in his debut campaign with Neil Lennon's team and he is rumoured to have attracted the interest of Bolton boss Owen Coyle.

The 23-year-old has three more years remaining on his current deal with Celtic.

"I enjoy it at Celtic and I want to stay but who knows what will happen in the next few weeks?" Kayal told the Daily Record.

"These discussions are nothing to do with me. It's a question for the people who are in charge and it will depend on them.

"I like Celtic, I like the fans, I like the manager and I would be very happy to keep playing for the club. But they must treat me at the level I deserve.''

"It is my wish to enjoy at least one more full season at Celtic and to give the fans and, especially, Neil Lennon my best form because we can be champions.''
