CELTIC are in talks with Liel Abada and Giorgos Giakoumakis over enhanced contracts.

The forwards are under contract until 2026, but discussions are ongoing about new five-year extensions that would keep them at the champions until at least 2027, according to a report on Sky Sports.

Ange Postecoglou brought the players to Parkhead last summer with Abada, 21, joining in a £3.5million switch from Maccabi Petah Tikva in July before 27-year-old Giakoumakis arrived the following month in a £2.5million move from Dutch outfit VVV-Venlo.

IN THE NET…Giorgos Giakoumakis celebrates scoring his stoppage-time winner against St Johnstone.

The manager believes they will be an integral part of the squad in future years after their joint success in their debut outings as the Hoops won their tenth title in 11 years after the bitter disapointment of failing to make history the previous term in the 10 in a row quest.

Abada has scored eight times in all competitions this time around while Giakoumakis blew the opportunity of hoisting his tally to eight when he missed a penalty-kick in the team’s 3-0 win at Livingston on Sunday.

Both are likely to figure in the final Champions League game of the campaign when Postecoglou’s men take on Real Madrid in the Bernabeu tomorrow night.
