A lot of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the latest claim to emerge surrounding their defender Kristoffer Ajer. 

According to the Sunday Mirror (via The Chronicle), the Norwegian defender is set to leave Parkhead this summer with Newcastle United his expected destination.

Would you be happy to sell Ajer for £6m?





The report has suggested the 23-year-old defender will leave this summer for the Tyneside club in a deal believed to be worth in the region of £6m.

Ajer has played a big role in Celtic’s 2020/21 campaign, having racked up 31 appearances in the Scottish Premiership in which he was able to get on the scoresheet once (via Transfermarkt).

Celtic fans flocked to the tweet from NUFC 360 which relayed the claim from the Sunday Mirror to provide their thoughts on the 23-year-old’s reported future.

What exactly did these Celtic fans have to say?

“Scandalous if true btw”

Amazing piece of business for Newcastle. Not sure what Celtic is thinking letting him go for 6

Ajer joined the Bhoys in 2016 from Norwegian side IK Start in a deal believed to be worth in the region of £540k and has since gone on to make 176 appearances for the Parkhead side (via Transfermarkt).

The reaction of these Celtic fans is overwhelming and it is pretty clear they feel £6m would be far too cheap of a transfer fee to allow Ajer to leave this summer.
