Speaking to the BBC, Kristoffer Ajer has reacted to his impending move to Celtic, having landed in Glasgow to start discussions with Ronny Deila and his coaching staff.
Ajer said: “I’m really happy [to be in Glasgow], I enjoyed the last time I was here. It’s [Celtic] a big club, so we will see what will happen, and tomorrow I will talk with them more. So we will see. I’m from Norway, so I have no problem [with the weather].”
A deal has been agreed between Celtic and Ajer’s current club Start for the transfer of the 17-year-old talent, with him set to link up with the Bhoys at the end of this season.
The Norwegian youth international is set to undergo talks to agree personal terms with the Bhoys, although Ajer so far sounds uncommitted on his plans to sign a deal with Deila’s side.
Talks begin again tomorrow for the former trialist, and Deila will be hoping to convince the teenager to move to Parkhead.
Ajer is considered one of the brightest young talents in European football, and although he has little first-team football to his name in his short career, big things are expected of him.
The midfielder has played 47 times for Start, and if a move to Celtic can be agreed, it could be the perfect way for Ajer to continue improving in a higher quality league, as he looks to keep growing as a top class player.
