Ajar staying with Celtic - Lennon

6th August 2019, 11:00 by Neil Foster

Leicester are said to be keen on Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer but Hoops manager Neil Lennon insists he will not be leaving.

The Foxes are now in the market for a centre back following Harry Maguire's defection to Manchester United and a number of possible replacements have been mentioned.

With the transfer window set to close on Thursday, the East Midlanders will need to move fast and it has been suggested by the Daily Star that they will offer £15m for the 21-year-old Norway international.

Lennon wants to keep him in Glasgow and made it clear that any interested party would have to stump up more cash than has previously been mentioned.

"£15million, I'd value Kris a lot higher than that. He has more to come, and I don't think £15m would cut it, not that we are entertaining any offers," he told The Scottish Sun

"I'd prefer to keep 'Jozo' full stop. I'm a big fan. There's been speculation about him, but we are not entertaining offers.

"Jozo has been superb for me. Ideally I'd like him to be in the building at the end of August."
