Ajer joined Celtic from in 2016, just after his 18th birthday, and has made 176 appearances for the Bhoys.

His efforts went a long way to helping the Scottish club land a quadruple treble of domestic trophies.

And quite a few Celtic fans were gutted to see him go:

Brentford boss Thomas Frank is delighted to have brought Ajer In.

“We wanted to get another central defender in, and Kris was our first choice,” the Dane told the Bees website.

“We think he fits the position specific profile perfectly, especially on the ball.

“He is a player at a good age, and we think he come straight in and be ready to perform in the Premier League.

“But he also fits the way we want to recruit players and work with them.

“He can develop as a player and both Brentford FC and Kris can move to a higher level in the coming years.”
