Recent Celtic arrival Oliver Burke has had a dream start to life in Glasgow.

He scored twice in the recent 4-0 win over St Mirren, despite playing in an unfamilar centre-forward role.

His loan deal from West Brom only lasts until the end of the season.

However, he has admitted that if possible he would like to extend the move.

“I feel at home already and I’m sure if I continue to keep doing well I’m sure I’ll want to stay here as a player” Burke told the Daily Record.

Burke’s words will bring delight to Celtic fans everywhere.

He has proved to be a shrewd accusition, and the support will be hoping the deal will be extended.

The chances of Burke staying long-term at Celtic seem slim at best.

West Brom manager Darren Moore is adamant that the player will be back at his club next season.

However, if possible the Hoops should try and find a way to extend the loan deal, perhaps for another season.

That would certainly be a boost for supporters.

Burke seems certain to keep his place in the Hoops starting line-up for the upcoming match v Hamilton.

With Timothy Weah also playing well, it will be intriguing to see if he is paired up-front with Burke, in what could be a deadly striking duo.
