Celtic defender Mikael Lustig will see his future at the club resolved this week.

Lustig, who is out of contract in the summer, has confirmed that talks will take place regarding his future.

Speaking to the Daily Record, as cited on The Scotsman, Lustig addressed his situation, with a Celtic exit becoming a distinct possibility.

Absolutely. They know well about my situation. I mean, I have been quite open that I might want to finish my career in Sweden. Clearly I think about it, but I have a lot to do.

I will get a decision regarding the future next week. It has been hard for some time now when I do not know about the future. I have been here [Celtic] for seven years and me and my family enjoy it.

Celtic do have the option to trigger a 12-month extension clause and it remains to be seen if they will do so.

Lustig has been with Celtic since 2012 but is no longer the first-team regular that he once was.

Jeremy Toljan was signed on loan from Borussia Dortmund in January but the German will leave in the summer, meaning the club could be in the market for two right-sided defenders if Lustig is also on his way.

Toljan has lacked consistency since arriving from the Bundesliga and a permanent Hoops stay looks unlikely.
