Kristoffer Ajer has been attempting to get stronger ahead of his move to Celtic.

Celtic-bound midfielder Kristoffer Ajer has been quoted by The Scottish Sun as saying that he is focusing on increasing his strength ahead of his summer move to Glasgow.

Ajer, 17, has been regarded as one of Europe's hottest young prospects for some time now, having impressed with IK Start in his native Norway.

The 6ft 5in midfielder has hit 13 goals in just 47 games for Start, underlining his reputation as one of the world's brightest teenagers - and his exploits in Norway triggered interest in his signature.

Last month, Celtic confirmed on their official website that they have agreed a deal to sign Ajer at the end of the season, with the youngster joining up with his compatriot Ronny Deila.

Ajer is tipped for big things, and Celtic fans will surely be keen to see him make his debut next season, as he's one of their most exciting signings in recent times.

Now, Ajer has been quoted by The Scottish Sun that he has been working hard over winter to improve his game, and highlighted one area in particular that he's been attempting to improve.

Ajer stated that he wants to become physically stronger, and the prospect of a strong, 6ft 5in midfielder who can score goals is a promising one for Celtic, who may have the perfect midfielder on their hands in Ajer.

"I have worked really hard in the winter and I am very pleased with how it has gone," said Ajer. "I have focused on increasing my strength and working on my condition," he added.

Do you think Ajer will be a success at Celtic?
