Plymouth manager Derek Adams has revealed that as his club are trying to get rid of Celtic loanee Nadir Ciftci but one place that the player won’t be going to in January is Parkhead.
Ciftci was sent on a season-long loan to Plymouth in the summer, but has so far struggled to impress.
Adams has now disclosed that Ciftci’s agent has told him that the on-loan striker isn’t going back to Celtic, as he tries to find him a new club in January.
“The only way that Nadir will leave in January is if he goes to another club. He won’t be returning to Celtic,” Adams said, as quoted by the Plymouth Herald.
“He will be moving on to another club or he gets himself back in the team here.
“We just have to wait and see. His agent is on the case.”
Ciftci has played eight times for the League One side but has failed to score a goal and has fallen out of the first-team picture.
The former’s time at Celtic has been a disaster.
He was singed by former manager Ronny Deila for a fee of £1.5million in 2015 after scoring 16 goals the previous season for Dundee United.
Unfortunately for the 25-year-old, he only managed to find the net four times in 22 games in his first season in Glasgow.
Under Brendan Rodgers’ management the player has featured even less, and has spent time on loan in Turkey and Poland, before his move to Plymouth.
The player still has another year left on his contract so it seems that he will be on the move again sooner rather than later as he attempts to kickstart his career.
