Nadir Ciftci has signed for Polish side Pogon Szczecin on loan move for the remainder of the season.

The 24-year-old has only made four appearances under Brendan Rodgers this season, playing a total of 43 minutes.

Ciftci’s move to the seventh placed side was confirmed on their official website after he completed a medical earlier today.
