Celtics’ Kristoffer Ajer on the Newcastle United radar?

Newcastle United are closely monitoring the rise of Celtic center-back Kristoffer Ajer after Magpie’s scouts were at Ibrox on Sunday to see the Norwegian.

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce aims to strengthen his defensive options with the addition of the 23-year-old defender, who has signed a contract with the Scottish clothes until 2022.

It is believed that the center-back is destined to leave Celtic Park.

According to The Sun, Norwich City is also linked to the Norwegian international, valued at £ 8m.

Ajer joined Celtic in 2016 and has since made 174 appearances for the club.
