Kristoffer Ajer clearly has no plans on leaving Celtic, if his latest comments are anything to go by.

Ajer, who turns only 21 today, has been a revelation for Celtic in 2019 so far.

It was Dedryck Boyata and Filip Benkovic occupying the Hoops' two central-defensive positions during the first half of the season, but the Norway international has been an ever-present figure there for Brendan Rodgers and later Neil Lennon since the turn of the year.

The youngster signed a new four-year contract at Parkhead 11 months ago [official website] and he intends on sticking around for a while.

 

He told The Scotsman: "I just signed a long-term deal with the club and that tells you all you need to know. I love it here at Celtic, playing for such a massive club.”

Ajer's comments will be music to the ears of a lot of Celtic supporters.

This is a player going places and with Boyata and Benkovic both set to leave Glasgow this summer, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if the young stalwart also courted interest.

But based on these comments, he won't be going anywhere for the moment.
