The news came as Newcastle United prepared to launch a discounted £ 8million bid to sign Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer, according to reports.
The Norway international is entering the final year of his contract this summer and has been asked to move on this summer by national team manager Stale Solbakken.

While the Hoops place a lot of importance on Ajer, their hand is weakened by the fact that the 22-year-old will be free to speak to clubs from January.

With key assets like Odsonne Edouard, Ryan Christie and Ajer all in the same contractual position, they face a huge summer overhaul after insisting their main men stay to help the fight for ten in a row.

Ajer has long been linked with a move to Italy – where AC Milan were once allegedly contenders – but his play would also reflect the will of the English Premier League, where there is no shortage of interest.
