In a statement that appeared on the club's website, Celtic have confirmed that defender Kris Ajer was sold to Brentford.

He signed a 5-year deal with the newly promoted English side, and although the financial details were not officially disclosed, it is believed that Celtic will receive a 13,5M GBP transfer fee for the player plus incentives. Brentford manager Thomas Frank spoke about Ajer briefly, declaring:

"We wanted to get another central defender in, and Kris was our first choice. We think he fits the position specific profile perfectly, especially on the ball...Kris is very composed and can find the right passes between the lines. His level when bringing the ball forward is very high. As a defender he has the physicality that you need, and he won his duels when he played in the Scottish league. He can help us in both boxes, with his strength in the air".

He played in 115 matches for Celtic, scoring 4 goals. With the Scottish side he won the Premiership three-years in a row since 2017, as well as the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup in those seasons.
