Celtic appear resigned to losing Shunsuke Nakamura - but they are hoping to persuade him to stay until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old Japan midfielder, whose contract expires in the summer, has hinted he may quit the Clydesdale Bank Premier League champions during the January transfer window.

"Celtic would be more than happy for Shunsuke to stay here for as long as he wants and certainly we want him to remain here until the end of the season," Hoops chief executive Peter Lawwell said.

The player is finding travelling between Glasgow and Japan for international duty increasingly difficult and he wants to return home for the sake of his young family.

Lawwell added: "His agent has intimated Shunsuke would like to return to Japan at some point."
