23-year-old Maloney, who is an attacking midfielder and also a striker when called upon, is out of contract in the summer so all interested clubs can speak to him in January to negotiate a summer move.
However the Hoops player hasn't ruled out staying at Celtic:
'My preferred option is to stay - I have said that from day one seven months ago. But the deal has to be right and that is the main thing. I would have liked a deal to have been done a lot quicker but both parties have to be happy and, until that happens, it will not be signed.'
