Former Celtic defender Mark Wilson believes Kristoffer Ajer will be the next high profile departure from the club, and that would be a big blow for the Hoops.

According to the Daily Record, Wilson told Ladbrokes Social Club that he has spoken to people who believe a move away is on the horizon for the £15m-£20m rated Ajer. 

He’s a top player, every week for Celtic he’s showing what a top centre-half he is. He can play a number of positions and a lot of players there, and guys I’ve spoken to suggest he’s going to be the next big transfer. For him I think you’re looking at £15m-£20m in a couple of years time.

READ CELTIC VERDICT

Although Ajer’s recent form for Celtic has looked slightly shaky, his departure from the club would be a loss for the Hoops.

The Norway international has been a figure of consistency since his move from Start, with his versatility being a huge bonus for Celtic.

After initially signing as a midfielder, Ajer has transitioned into a brilliant ball-playing central defender, whilst also having the ability to cover at right-back; as he emphasised with his fine performance there against Motherwell. 

The 21-year-old has already amassed 98 appearances for Celtic in his three years at Parkhead, despite spending half a season on loan with Kilmarnock in 2017, which emphasises his importance to the side at such a young age.
