We all know that Celtic need strengthened after some high profile departures this summer but in my mind there is one piece of business that has to be done above all others.

Signing Joe Ledley to a long term deal.

The Welsh midfielder has been fantastic for Neil Lennon and Celtic since signing on a free in 2010.

There is only 1 year left on his current deal.

He has been Celtic’s unsung hero at times and will definitely soften the blow from Wanyama’s departure. That’s why I think it is pivotal to get Joe signed up as soon as possible so he doesn’t end up leaving for free next summer.

Cardiff are reportedly eager to re-sign Joe now that they are in the Premiership but Celtic must hold firm and make sure the midfielder stays for the long term.

If he were to go I would be extremely disappointed, even more so than I was with Wanyama or Hooper.

So while we all clamour over ridiculous rumours and look to see who’s coming in through the revolving door at Parkhead we must ensure we don’t see Joe coming out of it.
