Ajeti not happy at Celtic with 'agents working' on £5m man January exit - Scots pundit

Agents could already be working on securing Albian Ajeti a move away from Celtic in January.

That’s according to former Rangers boss Alex McLeish, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Switzerland international’s options ahead of the winter transfer window.

Ajeti, 24, has failed to make Celtic’s last three matchday squads in all competitions.

This comes following Georgios Giakoumakis’ return to full fitness, leaving Ange Postecoglou with a wealth of striking options.

Summer signings Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota are both in excellent form while Ajeti has only managed to score three goals from his 13 outings this season.

With the January window approaching, McLeish has suggested agents are already working on securing Ajeti a move away from Glasgow just over a year after his £5million arrival from West Ham.

“It’s never good when you see a player out of the squad,” McLeish told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He won’t be happy with that. Ajeti is one of those players who will expect to be in the squads at the very least.

“I suspect there will be agents working in the background trying to get him a move.

“Any player worth their salt, if they aren’t playing they will be looking to find a move.

“So it wouldn’t surprise me if that one happens.”

Ajeti was handed a run in the team before Jota and Giakoumakis were properly integrated into their new side.

He has made 44 appearances for the Hoops and scored nine goals in total.
