‘Take The Money And Run’ ‘We Will Decide When He Leaves’ Celtic Fans React Angrily As Player’s Agent Reveals Summer Exit Plan

The agent of Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer has confirmed that the Norwegian international is planning on leaving the Scottish champions in the summer.

The 21-year-old has just over two years remaining on his current deal at Parkhead but Tore Pedersen has said the player will not be signing a contract extension, with the centre-back seeking an exit:

“He will not extend his contract with Celtic and will leave this summer.There are several clubs who are interested, but I can’t go into their names. There are many who have followed him for a long period.There are also clubs who would like to have him, but who cannot afford it.There is generally great interest in Kristoffer.”

Supporters on Twitter are furious with Pedersen’s comments but some would sell up if they got a decent offer for Ajer:

Of course, it will be down to Celtic’s hierarchy to decide whether Ajer leaves at the end of the season or not. The length of his contract means they are under no immediate pressure to sell, but manager Neil Lennon is unlikely to want to keep an unhappy player in the squad.

It is a surprising development considering the Norwegian stated in January that he was happy at Celtic Park but it appears that negotiations over a new deal have broken down, leading to Pedersen to make a public statement about his client’s future.
