Speculation has been rife about the Dutchman’s future, with a number of clubs in the Premier League in England and in Europe keen to capture his signature.
However, the 23-year-old knows time is on his side and is eager to learn and develop his game at the Hoops.
“Every player wants to develop but I know, like everyone, Celtic is an amazing club, a very big club, and you don’t want to leave Celtic for a lesser club.
“There was a lot of speculation and a lot of talk last summer that I wanted to leave and everyone was not so positive around me.
“But I just enjoy playing here. I am still only 23 and I am learning every day and until the time is there I just want to talk about Celtic and nothing else.
“We will see what happens in the summer but as it looks right now I am still here.”
