Newcastle United supporters have been reacting on Twitter after a report linked them with Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer.
The Norway international has enjoyed five trophy-laden years with the Hoops winning three League titles, two Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups during his time at Parkhead.
In recent years Ajer has attracted the attention of some of the continent’s biggest clubs, with AC Milan thought to be tracking his process and, according to the Daily Mail, Newcastle have now entered the running and are preparing an £8m offer.
Steve Bruce’s men are currently embroiled in a battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League, and their supporters are finding it hard to believe that Ajer would want to join the St. James’ Park outfit in their current state.
“Top player! He’s worth more than that, and won’t want to play in the championship Also another Virgil situation where he’ll be worth 5x that come 2022”
“They can bid for anybody they want but who in their right mind would play under Bruce”
“He potentially could be a really top player. Can’t see him fancying bruceball”
“What player in their right mind would want to join this joke of a football club”
“Will he want to play in the Championship”
“Good defender but if we go down he won’t come”
