With many Celtic stars looking for the Parkhead exit door this summer, one man that has made no secret of his intentions to move is Norwegian international defender Kristoffer Ajer.

Ajer has claimed Celtic agreed to allow a move this transfer window as long as he agreed to stay and help the Hoops quest for the ten.

The campaign for the unprecedented tenth title in a row fell flat on its face and now Ajer is looking for the Parkhead club to keep up their side of the bargain.

And it seems the move is in full flow as English media outlet Chronicle Live reports that Ajer is about to sign for Newcastle United for a meagre £6m.

Granted, Ajer is entering the last year of his contract but £6m? Come on!

The Celtic board would be guilty of serious gross incompetence if they allowed Ajer to leave for such a paltry fee but I guess the only saving grace is with Ange Postecoglou’s reputation for taking no nonsense, hopefully he would step in and not allow such a derisory bid for one of Celtics top stars.
