Some Newcastle United fans were voicing their discontent after a report emerged over Celtic’s demands for transfer target defender Kristoffer Ajer.

According to The Daily Record, the Bhoys are looking for £16m to part ways with the Norway international. It proves to be quite a steep demand from the Glasgow giants with the centre-half possessing just a year on his contract.

Ajer has endured a miserable season with the green and white half of Glasgow, finishing a staggering 25 points behind rivals Rangers.

The 23-year-old, himself, has suffered from Coronavirus and a groin injury and missed small parts of the campaign. He was on show to the Newcastle scouts earlier this month during the loss to Steven Gerrard’s team and drew criticism for his part in the build-up to the second goal from Kris Boyd.
