Tonev open to joining Celtic

BY foxsports • April 17, 2013

Aleksandar Tonev says it is an 'honour' to be a target for Celtic and the Lech Poznan winger would be keen on a summer transfer.

The Bulgaria international has regularly been linked with a move to Celtic, and is also reportedly a target of Italian duo Fiorentina and Lazio.

However, the 23-year-old is prepared to reject the opportunity to head to Serie A in favour of playing regular UEFA Champions League football at Parkhead.

"It's an honour to know Celtic are interested in me," Tonev told the Daily Record.

"They have a big history and their performance in Europe this year has shown they are ready to create some new history.

"Last summer there were Italian teams interested and even though Serie A is one of the top leagues it's important for me I consistently play Champions League football. Celtic is somewhere I could achieve that.

"I just concentrate on playing. Hopefully a move can be organised this summer."

Tonev still has two seasons to run on his contract with Lech, but reports have previously suggested the Polish side would accept an offer in the region of ?2million.
