Joe Ledley is not surprised about the growing speculation surrounding the future of Gary Hooper but hopes his Celtic team mate resists the temptation to try pastures new.

The Hoops have already rejected an offer, reported to be about £5million, from Norwich, but manager Neil Lennon bracing himself for the Canaries to make another bid before the transfer window closes.

And Ledley, who is hoping to have finally shrugged off a pelvis problem which had been troubling him recently, said: "Gary is one of our main players, he links up play and scores goals so hopefully we can keep him. Everyone will want to sign him because of what he has done but hopefully he is happy and will stay here for a long time."
