Celtic striker Nadir Ciftci will not return to the club this January after it emerged that there is no break clause in his loan deal to Plymouth Argyle, The Scottish Sun is reporting.
Nadir Ciftci joined League One newcomers Plymouth Argyle on a season long loan deal in the summer but manager Derek Adams wanted to send him back to Celtic after a run of poor form.
But this is not possible because his contract does not allow him to be sent back prematurely.
The 25-year-old joined Celtic back in 2015 but has not enjoyed much success at Parkhead.
With just four goals in 26 games for the Bhoys, Ciftci’s time at Celtic has stalled his career.
He was subsequently farmed out to Eskişehirspor in Turkey and MKS Pogoń Szczecin in Poland before his summer move to Plymouth.
At Plymouth, he has yet to score his first goal for the Pilgrims in eight outings and he has not featured since September with Derek Adams hoping to send him back to Celtic to fund a move for another striker.
But with this not being a possibility, he might have to reconsider his options and recall the Turkish forward to the first team.
Nadir Ciftci’s career has gone downhill since he moved from Dundee United to Celtic.
This move to Plymouth was supposed to resurrect his career and he started the first six games in the league but poor form in front of goal has cost him his place.
Plymouth need a goal scorer to maintain their survival hopes but Ciftci does not appear to be the answer.
