Celtic have held talks with Feyenoord striker Colin Kazim-Richards just a day after they announced the loan signing of Manchester City attacker Patrick Roberts, with a late January move in the offing, according to the Daily Mail.
The Turkish international forward’s playing time at the Dutch giants has been restricted in recent weeks due to his threat towards a journalist who questioned him over his attitude, resulting in an inevitable two-week ban from playing.
However, this seemed to be the final straw for Kazim-Richards who now looks to have one foot out of the door in Rotterdam, with Celtic showing a big interest in making a move for him.
The deal for Kazim-Richards could prove to be a big one for Ronny Deila’s side, as they look to bolster their already powerful attacking options ahead of the second half of the season that will be largely spent in consolidating their place at the top of the SPL.
The 29-year-old is a full Turkish international forward, making 37 appearances for his country and bagging just two goals since his debut in 2007.
However, Kazim-Richard’s form in Holland has proved to be much better, bagging 12 goals in 38 games during his tenure at Feyenoord.
