Celtic have turned down an offer from Brentford worth £15million for defender Kristoffer Ajer.

Norwegian media have reported that Celtic would’ve got £12million up front, then a £3million add-on for the unsettled defender.

But it is believed Parkhead chiefs are holding out for a minimum guarantee of £15million, also rejecting bids from Norwich.

Ajer has already gone public about his wishes to leave Glasgow.

Asked today about offers from other clubs for his players, boss Ange Postecoglou said: “To be honest I am not as focused on outgoings as I am on incoming.

“Incoming is where my pure focus is at the moment. I can’t control who leaves, what I can control and push for is to bring people in.”

Christie is also out of his contract in January, and so teams can get him on a pre-contract deal, especially as it seems likely that he will be unwilling to sign an extension and so it seems the case that Celtic will look to cash in.

Sampdoria the newest side to have interest face competition for the midfielders signature by Burnley, Sean Dyce will be hoping to add him into his squad.

Celtic aren’t in a strong position here, and Postecoglou is probably already resigned to losing him to either Palace, Burnley or Sampdoria.
