Celtic ace reveals Premier League dream

Published Add your comment

Celtic defender Jos Hooiveld has revealed he is keen to extend his loan spell at table-topping Southampton reports BBC Radio Solent.

The 28-year-old was speaking after Tuesday night's 2-1 victory over Peterborough United, with the Dutchman netting the winning goal to help extend the Saints' lead to five points at the Championship summit.

"I am here until January but I am very open to staying, yes," said Hooiveld. "To get the goal was great as it proved to be the winner so I am very pleased with that.

"The partnership with Jose Fonte gets better and better. You need some time to get used to each other and I'm really getting the feeling of starting to know him well."

Limited opportunities at Celtic Park meant Bhoys boss Neil Lennon allowed Hooiveld to leave Parkhead on loan in search of regular first-team football.

And with 11 appearances and three goals to his name in his short stint at St Mary's, the Celtic stopper admitted he would welcome the opportunity to remain at Nigel Adkins' Southampton, as they continue their charge towards the Barclays Premier League

"I have not heard anything further," he added. "But I am really enjoying myself and the gaffer is pleased with me and I am very pleased to be here."
