Celtic midfielder Kristoffer Ajer has revealed that he is considering another loan move in attempt to secure regular first-team football.
The Norwegian youngster, who spent the second half of last season on loan to Kilmarnock, has told Aftenposen that he is going to discuss his future with Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.
“The transfer window opens on January 1,” Ajer said, “so I’ll talk to Brendan Rodgers and find out what the plan is.”
“I’m 19 years old and it’s clear there are lots of good international players here.”
“Despite that I’ve played a lot of games so it’s all positive.”
Football Insider verdict: Judging from his comments above, Ajer is well-thought of by those at Celtic Park, and time is still on his side – he is still only 19 years old. But with Celtic thinking of signing another defender in January and the likes of Nir Bitton ahead of him in the pecking order, perhaps the time is right for another loan move, at least until the end of the season. He was a big success at Kilmarnock last season so perhaps a return to Rugby Park could be in order.
