Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer says he wants to leave Parkhead this summer after five years at the club. 

The 23-year-old Norway international is under contract until 2022 but he's being heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with Newcastle reportedly keen on signing him.

"There are many rumours, and right now there are only rumours," Ajer told Norweigan publication VG.  "It is clear that something will happen this summer. It is the best for both parties."

He was also linked with a move to AC Milan last year and Ajer says his priority is now to play in one Europe's top leagues, having gained valuable experience in Scotland.

"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.

"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."
