Dusko Tosic holds no plans to leave Besiktas despite interest from top clubs

Celtic target Dusko Tosic has revealed what his future will look like to the Turkish media after reports emerged he could leave Besiktas this month.

The Serbian could depart the Turkish outfit in the current transfer window, and the player has also been a transfer target for Celtic, as Brendan Rodgers looks to reinforce his squad.

Speaking to Sabah, Tosic was questioned about his future after reports he could say his goodbyes to the Turkish champions in January: “I have been receiving offers for the past couple of years. In truth, I am very happy in Istanbul. I am enjoying the best time of my life here. We win titles, we are challenging with the best teams in the world and we have brilliant fans.

“I want to stay at this great club unless the board has different plans for me. I respect their decision but if they don’t want to sell me then I’m definitely staying here and will fight for my jersey.”

Last month, it was reported by the Turkish press that Celtic are looking to bolster their defensive options in January, and Tosic would be an ideal signing for the Scottish Premiership champions.

It was claimed Celtic were ready to submit a bid worth up to €3m to acquire the former QPR player. The Serbia international would be brought in as competition for Eric Sviatchenko, Jozo Simunovic, and Dedryck Boyata.
