Celtic striker Nadir Ciftci is set is set to join Motherwell on loan after his loan spell with Plymouth Argyle came to an end, according to a report.

The claim in The Scottish Sun comes after The Turkish forward, who has been on loan with Plymouth Argyle of League One, had his agreement with the Devon club terminated by mutual consent, after failing to make an impression under Derek Adams.

Cifci, 25, has only made eight outings in total since his move south in the summer.

The Celtic attacker moved to the Scottish champions from Dundee in 2015 and has been loaned out on a temporary basis ever since.

Motherwell have been in pursuit of a replacement for their hitman Lewis Moult, who left for Championship side Preston North End earlier this month, and in Ciftci they may have found a resolution.

Football Insider verdict:

It is make or break now for the Turkish attacker. The 25-year-old has failed to consistently produce in front of goal and at this stage of his career, he really needs to be doing that. After having his contract cut-short at Plymouth, it appeared as though he really had no future in the game, but with the news that Motherwell are to step in and offer him a chance, he needs to take it with both hands. Fir Park needs someone to reproduce on the field, in the same way that Lewis Moult has done for the Steelmen and Ciftci may well be the answer.
