Celtic’s Norwegian Defender Already Told Squad About Future

Posted by

Kris Ajer has his heart set on a summer move away from Celtic according to other media sources that claim the Norwegian has already told his team his plans.

This has been speculated for the past season as the defender’s agent leaked out his plans for Ajer and a move in the summer.

The Norwegian still has 2 years left to run on his contract and many clubs including former manager Rodgers, has been linked with him.

The Athletic reported than an unnamed Hoops player has stated that Ajer has confessed his desire to leave Celtic in the coming weeks.

If these reports are true, Celtic will be due another big payday as Ajer has been quoted at £20 million if clubs wish to take him.

Ajer has already dumped his agent Tore Pederson and this could be a sign of the defender making plans for a move and maybe signing with a bigger agent of an EPL club.

Speaking to the Norwegian media, Pederson said: “My contract with Kris expired this May.

“Why wasn’t it renewed? Kris must answer about his choice, if he wants to.

“Did I want to renew? Yes, of course. Kris is a brilliant guy and a very good central defender.

“I have followed his career since he was 15 years old. I wish him all the best in the future.”
