Report: Striker Colin Kazim-Richards nearing Celtic transfer, arrives in Glasgow for talks

Feyenoord, De Kuip

Celtic are reportedly edging towards a deal for Feyenoord's Colin Kazim-Richards.

According to the Daily Mail, Feyenoord striker Colin Kazim-Richards has travelled to Glasgow and held talks with Celtic ahead of a move to the Bhoys.

Celtic have already snapped up Danish international centre back Erik Sviatchenko from FC Midtjylland, whilst the Daily Mail's report also suggests that an 18-month loan deal for Manchester City teenager Patrick Roberts is close to completion.

Now though, the Daily Mail suggest that Celtic are also close to signing a new striker, with Feyenoord's Colin Kazim-Richards in Glasgow to seal a move to Celtic Park.

Kazim-Richards, 29, came up through the ranks with clubs like Queens Park Rangers, Arsenal, Bury and Brighton, before moving on to the Premier League with Sheffield United in 2006.

Moves to Fenerbahce, Toulouse, Galatasaray, Olympiacos, Blackburn Rovers, Bursaspor and now Feyenoord have followed, in what has turned into a nomadic career for the London-born Turkey international.

Despite hitting 16 goals in 50 games, he is now out of favour at Feyenoord behind Michiel Kramer and the emerging Anass Achahbar, whilst Kazim-Richards has also been suspended by the Dutch club for his conduct with a journalist, as reported by The Guardian.

With Celtic on the lookout for a striker, Kazim-Richards could become their latest new signing ahead of Monday's transfer deadline, with the striker allegedly in Glasgow now, discussing terms with the Bhoys.
