STEFAN JOHANSEN will be offered a bumper new deal by Ronny Deila to make sure he spends the best days of his career at Celtic.
The 24-year-old midfielder has two years left on his current contract after joining from Deila’s former club Stromsgodset in January 2014 in a £2million move.
The Hoops boss said: “He has the values and skills we are looking for, he is happy here and we are happy with him – so that is something we, hopefully, can do.

“We would rather extend his contract than sell him.

“That’s something we are looking for. We have some young, good players and Stefan is one of them.

“We want to have consistency in our team and he is one of those we really want to keep.”

The Norwegian international has had an inspirational season as he has pulled the strings in the middle of the park while guiding the team towards only their fourth treble in their history.
Quite rightly, he has picked up the CQNMagazine Player of the Year award after a recent poll among the fans.  
Ronny Deila seems determined to do all he can to keep his best players at Celtic. His predecessor became somewhat frustrated at the club selling his best players with the likes of Victor Wanyama, Gary Hooper and Joe Ledley all being sold to the detriment of Neil Lennon’s side.
