Nadir Ciftci was signed under Ronny Deila in the summer of 2015. The Turk joined Celtic from Dundee United for a fee of £1.5 million. He didn’t have the best of times in Glasgow.
The Courier is reporting that Dundee is interested in the 29-year-old. Dundee are back in the Scottish top flight this season and is looking to strengthen their team to remain so. Dundee gained promotion after beating Killie, subsequently relegating the Ayrshire side.
Ciftci has been told to find a new club after the current club, Samsunspor, missed out on automatic promotion by a goal. The second tier Turkish club failed to get past the play-off semi-final however Ciftci did get on the scoresheet.
For Celtic, throughout his two seasons, Ciftci played twelve league games and netted the ball four times. He couldn’t feature for Celtic until he served his six-game ban for biting an opponent.
In 2016 he was loaned out to Eskisehirspor but it was seen as unsuccessful. He then was loaned to Polish team Pogon Szczecin in February of 2017 where he failed to score in 10 games. When he returned to Celtic he was sent on another goalless loan to Plymouth Argyle in the English League 1 before being loaned to Motherwell where he managed to score 3 goals in 11 games.
Ciftci left Celtic in 2018 as a free agent and returned to Turkey.
