Motherwell complete loan signing of Celtic's Nadir Ciftci
The striker has joined the Steelmen on a deal until the end of the season.
Motherwell have completed the signing of Celtic striker Nadir Ciftci on loan until the end of the season.
Ciftci had been at Plymouth on a season-long loan but his spell on England's south coast was cut short and he travelled to hold talks with Motherwell at their training camp in Tenerife.
Agreement was reached on a deal that see him become Stephen Robinson's second signing of the January transfer window
Motherwell have already signed striker Curtis Main to fill the hole left by Louis Moult and Ciftci will add competition for the central attacking role in Stephen Robinson's side.
A move would give the 25-year-old a fresh opportunity to kick-start his career after a series of disappointments since leaving Dundee United in 2015.
After failing to win a regular place in Celtic's side, Ciftci has had loan spells at Eskisehirspor and Pogon Szczecin as well as Plymouth.
Speaking to the official Motherwell website, the Turk said: "My first impressions have been really good. It feels like home already. It gives me a good feeling.
"I obviously know the league and the teams. I've played a lot of times against Motherwell as well so it will be a good place to kick on."
Manager Stephen Robinson added: "I'm delighted to have got Nadir here until the end of season. He will provide us something different up front and he is a player of real pedigree.
"He has a proven track record of scoring goals in the Scottish top flight and we're pleased to have got him here."
