CELTIC striker Nadir Ciftci is poised to join Polish side Pogon Szczecin on loan until the end of the season.
The frozen-out frontman, who has yet to start a game in this campaign, is on the brink of agreeing a deal with the team who are in seventh place in the top division.
Ciftci, who cost ex-boss Ronny Deila £1.5million from Dundee United in the summer of 2015, has made late substitute appearances in the Hoops’ last two games, but is surplus to requirements at Brendan Rodgers’ champions.
The 25-year-old attacker came close to a temporary transfer to Motherwell last month, but the proposed move failed to beat the deadline.
Ciftci spent the last six months of last season on loan at Turkish outfit Eskisehirspor before returning to Parkhead in the summer.
He is under contract at the Hoops until June 2019. The Polish transfer window closes at the end of this month.
Brendan Rodgers has recently re-introduced Ciftci to the Celtic bench and he has made second half appearances against both St Johnstone and Inverness.
