Celtic boss Lennon hopeful of new Joe Ledley deal – 'We have made him an offer'

Neil Lennon remains hopeful that Joe Ledley will sign a new deal at Celtic.

The Wales midfielder is out of contract in the summer and has been offered an improved contract by the Parkhead club but negotiations have reportedly stalled.

We have made him an offer, Joe is aware of that as is his agent and we are waiting on them.

He seems happy here, his performance last week will have done his confidence a world of good because he has been a wee bit curtailed this season by injuries.

We know how good a players he is, that's why we have offered him a new deal.

My gut feeling is, looking at his body language over the last week or so, I'd like to think he would stay on.

– Neil Lennon.
