Bayer Leverkusen have opened talks with Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer.

The Norwegian ace has been with Celtic since 2016 and after a loan spell at Kilmarnock in 2016-17, signed a new four-year deal with the Hoops in 2018 even as  AC Milan have ended their long-standing interest

Ajer hinted that his Celtic future may be resolved this summer as he enters the final year of his contract

Ajer, who has one year left on his contract, said last week: “It is probably for the best that something should happen this year.”

Rumours also linked the 23-year-old to Norwich and Newcastle.

When asked about his situation, Ajer, who made 47 appearances for the club in 2020-21 and scored two goals, played down the speculation.

Ajer hinted that his Celtic future may be resolved this summer as he enters the final year of his contract

Speaking to a Norwegian press conference, Ajer said: “There are of course a lot of rumours, but as of right now there are only rumours

“I have one year left of the contract and that is what I am focused on, but of course, something might possibly happen this summer.

“I will adhere to that and stay loyal to the club, but in order for both me and the club to have the best possible starting point (for negotiations) it is probably for the best that something should happen this year.”

On Monday, Ange Postecoglou verbally agreed personal terms with Celtic to become their new manager.
