Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer has revealed that he expects to leave the club this summer and aims to move to a bigger league.
The Norwegian centre-back has been at Celtic since 2016 and, after a loan spell with Kilmarnock, established himself as a first-choice pick over the past four seasons.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a move for some time, with Newcastle United among the teams reportedly interested.
Ajer told Norwegian outlet VG: “There are many rumours, and right now there are only rumours.
“It is clear that something will happen this summer. It is the best for both parties.”
The defender added: “(In terms of which) club, I do not want to go into anything.
“We’ll get to that later, but it’s a top-five league I aim for.”
He added: “I have gained good experience after playing almost 180 games for a top club like Celtic.
“I have experienced how football can be on good and bad days. So it has been a very good experience.”
