'I am a wee bit of a Celtic man' - Key man gushes over 'fantastic' talent due for Hoops return

  'I am a wee bit of a Celtic man' - Key man gushes over 'fantastic' talent due for Hoops return Ross County boss John Hughes has recently revealed that Celtic youngster Leo Hjelde attracted interest from Leeds United. Hjelde, who was loaned out to Ross County by Celtic in the summer, had arrived at Parkhead back in 2019 from Rosenborg.

He plied his trade with the Celtic youth side and is of course expected back at Parkhead this summer.

Norwich City have joined the race to sign Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer this summer.

That’s according to a report from The Scottish Sun, who claim that Canaries boss Daniel Farke wants a new centre-back at Carrow Road ahead of the 2021/22 season.

They claim that Ajer is preparing to quit Parkhead in the summer with just over 12 months left on his Celtic contract.

Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber appears to have a close eye on Ajer ahead of the club’s return to the English top flight, with the 37-year-old watching the Norway international in action in recent weeks.

'About time', 'This is better than signing Howe' - Lots of Celtic fans react as news emerges

  'About time', 'This is better than signing Howe' - Lots of Celtic fans react as news emerges Lots of Celtic fans have been discussing a news update involving Fergal Harkin that emerged on social media. Football Insider has recently reported about Harkin, saying that the Hoops are ‘deadset’ on signing the Manchester City man. And more so, they are ready to turn down Eddie Howe’s demands by hiring Harkin in the summer.

And more so, they are ready to turn down Eddie Howe’s demands by hiring Harkin in the summer.

Ajer, who has missed two league games all season, is valued at £3.6m by Transfermarkt, however, reports earlier this month suggested that Newcastle were preparing an £8m offer, so his actual value is likely much more than £3.6m.

Transfer Tavern take

It seems as if Celtic have a similar situation with Ajer to the one they have with Odsonne Edouard.

The French forward is ready to leave the Hoops over the coming months, regardless of who comes in as the new Celtic manager.

In our view, Celtic may have to cash in on both in the upcoming window, and, in a way, Norwich’s interest could actually help the Bhoys bring in a sizeable fee for the towering centre-back.

The Hoops could be shrewd by playing both Premier League clubs off against each other, which could result in them maximising their profits.

Ajer only cost Celtic £520,000 in 2016, so they look set to make a profit – the question is how much.
