West Ham United forward Albian Ajeti is set to join Celtic on loan, according to the Guardian.

The newspaper have reported on their website that the Switzerland international will move to Celtic, who will then have the opportunity to sign him for £5million once the season is over.

Scottish football is set to return at the beginning of August, meaning that Ajeti will have no rest – not that he needs any after failing to make an impact at the London Stadium.

David Moyes is said to be preparing a big summer clear out in east London, with Ajeti’s departure set to be the first of many over the transfer window.

West Ham spent £8million to bring Ajeti in from Basel, and it looks like he will leave the club already without finding the back of the net.

It was intended that the 23-year-old would offer strong competition for Sebastien Haller, but when the Frenchman was injured, it was Michail Antonio who stepped up to the mark for the Irons.

Ajeti also failed to start a single Premier League game, only starting against the likes of West Brom in the FA Cup, a clash they actually lost in the end.

So, with Ajeti on his way, who else could join the Swiss forward through the exit door?

In the same Guardian report, it is suggested that up to five senior players could be sold, and they are big names.

Felipe Anderson, Fabian Balbuena, Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku and Andriy Yarmolenko all have doubts over their futures after failing to impress this season, with Moyes not messing around.

All five would bring big money in for the Scotsman to spend, and he must use it wisely and not fall to the same mistakes that previous managers have fallen to before.
