Kristoffer Ajer Newcastle switch eyed from Celtic
Newcastle United are among the clubs that have asked Celtic about a possible transfer deal for versatile defender Kristoffer Ajer.
The 23-year-old has impressed during his time in Scotland, but CaughtOffside now understands that Celtic is preparing for him to leave this summer.
Newcastle are interested in Ajer, who can play center-back, right-back or defensive midfield and Norwich City have also expressed an interest in signing him.
The desire of these two teams to sign Ajer is great, so it will only be a question of who can make the better offer to Celtic in the end.

Ajer has been with the club since 2016 and was also loaned out to Kilmarnock. However, it will be interesting to see how he develops as he moves to the more competitive Premier League.
Newcastle haven’t had the best season and could undoubtedly benefit from making some changes to their squad this summer. Ajer looks like he could be an upgrade for the other central defenders.
