Sierra Leone's Mohamed Bangura has revealed he is aiming at a move to one of Europe's elite leagues at the end of this season.

He signed a four-year deal with Scottish club Celtic just last month moving from Swedish side AIK Stockholm.

The 22-year-old is hoping a good season in Scotland can attract the attention of clubs in England, Spain and Italy.

"Coming to Celtic is a good move for me, but I want to reach the top," Bangura told a number of newspapers.

"That's what I'm working towards and this is a step forward for me. I am still fighting to reach the highest level."

Bangura, who made his debut as a substitute in Saturday's 4-0 defeat of Motherwell, is hoping he can take his international form to the Scottish Premier League.

He made his mark last weekend for Sierra Leone scoring from the penalty spot to earn his side a 2-1 win over Egypt in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

"To come to Celtic gives me a good feeling because it's another step in my career," he said.

"I have to work to get to the top. I'm talking about the Spanish league, the English league or maybe the Italian league.

"If I can do my best here with Celtic then I will see what the future holds.

"If possible, I could make the next step in one year - if everything goes well and the club is willing, why not?"
