FILIPE JOTA says that he will only think about a permanent move to Celtic once he has helped to bring the league title back to the club.

The winger, who signed a one-year loan deal on deadline day from Benfica, is loving life in his early days in Glasgow, and Celtic have the option to buy the 22-year-old come the end of the season.

But he says that his long-term future is being placed firmly on the back-burner as he focuses on putting Celtic back at the top of the Premiership pile.

“Right now I think the most important thing is to play and to keep on learning and adapting to the Scottish game,” Jota said.

“I know the terms of my loan but I don’t want to think about that. I have to focus on my football, adapt to the game here and learn. Everything at the right time.

“First win games, title and then we speak about other things. Anything else will be discussed at the end of the season.

“Moving to Celtic is a big responsibility because of the size of the club. I want to be at the level they ask of me. It’s great to be here, there are plenty of good players and good coaches with refreshing ideas. Now I want to be on the pitch with the lads and do my thing.

“I’m here to help the team and the main achievement would be the title - I’m here to win that.

“Any coach or player at Celtic must be ready to win every game. They must be ready to win the title.

“The first week has been amazing. I have met the lads in Lennoxtown although unfortunately lots of them are still away with their national teams. 

“Training has been good, I’m adapting and now I just want to start as soon as possible.”
