    Kristoffer Ajer: New Bhoys can help us in drive for success

  • THE Celtic squad will be boosted by the arrival of new faces during the January transfer window, with Oliver Burke the first to arrive on a six-month loan from West Brom. And he was followed by Timothy Weah, who has joined on a six-month loan from Paris Saint-Germain and Vakoun Issouf Bayo, who signed on a four-year deal from Slovakian side, Dunajská Streda.

    Kristoffer Ajer, like the rest of his team-mates, welcomes the introduction of new players, while also appreciating the benefits of a loan spell for a player, something he did at Kilmarnock back in 2017.

    “To get new players into the squad really helps a squad in terms of learning from new players,” Ajer told this week's Celtic VIew,” and it’s also competition for places in the team. So that’s really healthy for any squad.

    “That’s probably the most important thing for your development as well – to know that there are always fantastic players who want to play in your position as well, so that’s really helpful for all the players in the squad.

    “To go out on loan can be helpful because it gives you some game-time and get the experience you need to come back and play for Celtic, so I only have positive things to say about a loan spell, from my own experience of going to Kilmarnock.”
