However, he is flying to Scotland on Tuesday to finalise terms and complete a medical.

Ajer, who is in La Manga, Spain, where he played for Norway under-19s against Portugal on Monday, was quoted as telling Faedrelandsvennen: “Yes, I travel down tomorrow and the clubs agree.

“So we will look at my appointment and the medical test. It is amazingly big for me.”
