"We not surprised. Every transfer window, Lakay always hands over a transfer request," Konco tells "We are sitting with about three or four transfer requests.

"We have not yet been approached by any team regarding his services,” he adds.

Lakay netted two goals and chipped in with four assists in 27 matches across all competitions for Celtic this past season.
