Sebastian Andersson has spoken out about the need to be playing regularly.
The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of this season and is one of a number of strikers linked with a move to Celtic.
Neil Lennon is in need of additional firepower for the second half of the season with Anderson appearing to be the type of player that could settle in quickly to the demands of playing for Celtic.
Speaking to the Daily Record the Union Berlin striker said:
For me, the most important thing is to play. Of course, you always have to talk about money – after all there is life after your career but if you don’t play, it’s no fun. I enjoy it at Union. We are not a one-man team. We have no stars.
Andersson has been a regular in the Union Berlin side this season, scoring 8 times in 16 Bundesliga performances after winning promotion last season.
From January 1 he will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement but it would seem that Celtic’s priority is to bring in a striker next month.
Barring injury Odsonne Edouard will remain Neil Lennon’s first choice striker which would suggest that Andersson will be looking elsewhere if Union Berlin don’t come up with the sort of offer that he feels he is worth.
