Newcastle United are expected to complete the signing of Kristoffer Ajer from Celtic this summer.

The 23-year-old Norwegian defender has been heavily linked with a move away from Parkhead in recent months.

The Daily Mirror (via Chronicle) are reporting that the Magpies will sign him for a fee of around £6 million.

The Celtic star has a big future ahead of him, and Newcastle manager Steve Bruce will be hoping he can help him fulfil his potential.

Newcastle need defensive reinforcements this summer. Centre-back is not the only department that needs strengthening, with a right-back amongst their priorities.

The reported £6 million asking price seems reasonable for a player of Ajer’s talent, and he could represent a good value signing for Newcastle.

It has been a disappointing season for Celtic, and it is no surprise that some of their key players are looking to move on.

A move to the Premier League would be the ideal next step in Ajer’s career, and playing at a higher level alongside better players could help him improve as a footballer.

Here is how Newcastle fans have reacted to the news.
