Nadir Ciftci has completed his loan move to Polish side Pogon Szczecin.

The 25-year-old flew into Poland yesterday to complete his medical and signed up until the end of June.

Despite making substitute appearances in Celtic’s last two matches it was clear that game time would be limited for the striker that was signed from Dundee United in the summer of 2015 for £1.5m.

Towards the end of the January transfer window Ciftci was in Holland hoping to arrange a loan deal before a last minute move to Motherwell fell through.

Fortunately the Polish transfer window remains open until February 28 allowing the striker to sign up with Pogon.

Among his team-mates will be former Dundee United defender Jaroslaw Fojut who signed a pre contract agreement to join Celtic while Neil Lennon was in charge but the deal fell through when he suffered cruciate ligament damage.

Pogon are currently sitting in seventh place in the league with Ciftci expected to make his debut on Sunday away to Cracovia Krakow.
