Albian Ajeti’s proposed move to Celtic has been put on hold with the striker back in Switzerland considering his future.
A number of reliable sources had claimed that the player would undergo a medical on Wednesday but while the two clubs have agreed terms the player has asked for time out.
Ajeti made nine substitute appearances in the EPL for West Ham but after being involved in a season that effectively ran for 12 months he isn’t rushing into committing himself to Celtic with the new season starting at the weekend.
