Decisions to be made: Deila updates situation surrounding Celtic trialists Ajer and Peteleu

Ronny Deila admits there are decisions to be made over Celtic trialists Kristoffer Ajer and Andrei Peteleu.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told the Daily Mail that he has decisions to make over the futures of trialists Kristoffer Ajer and Andrei Peteleu.

The Bhoys have yet to make a January signing, and manager Deila has been casting his eye over two trialists during the past seven days.

Norwegian wonderkid Kristoffer Ajer linked up with his compatriot Deila, having earned quite the reputation for himself with IK Start.

The giant, 6ft 5in midfielder has been dubbed as one of Norway's brightest young talents, but Celtic have looked to steal a march on any other interested clubs by taking the 17-year-old on trial last week.

Ajer wasn't the only trialist in Glasgow though, as Romanian full back Andrei Peteleu was also given the chance to impress Bhoys manager Deila.

Largely-unknown defender Peteleu, 23, is currently playing with Petrolul Ploiesti, and has seven caps for the Romanian Under-21 side to his name.

Now, manager Deila has admitted to the Daily Mail that Ajer is a 'talented boy', and could be both a player for now and for the future if Celtic pursue a permanent deal.

Deila also stated that he didn't see quite as much of Peteleu, but has decisions to make on both players as he seeks to improve his squad at Celtic Park.

"He did well, he's a talented boy," said Deila. "We were happy to get him here to train and it was good for him, too, to see what we are about. We haven't made a decision yet, there are a lot of things to look at. But we' ll see what happens," he added.

"He could be both, but again this is not a player who would immediately be a big part of the first team. It can be also that he stays in Norway for half the season, also to finish school. We have to see the whole package. He would be a project."

"He went home after a week and there is a decision to be made on him, too. He was okay. I didn't get to see as much of him as I did Ajer but we have to compare him to the other options here," he added.
