Colin Kazim-Richards deal opens up Celtic approach for John Guidetti

Feyenoord, De Kuip

The Swedish striker was also a target for Feyenoord.

Celtic currently have John Guidetti on loan from Manchester City. The Swede is a free agent in the summer and is currently considering his options.

One of those is a potential switch to Feyenoord.

Guidetti also played at Feyenoord on loan, in the 2011-12 campaign. Guidetti was a massive fan favourite during his loan spell with Feyenoord. He scored 20 goals in 23 games before it all came unstuck with a bizarre illness which attacked his nervous system and left him out of action for over a year.

The striker, who has scored 15 goals in 35 appearances for Celtic this season, however does not look like going to Feyenoord - if reports from this morning prove true.

It is believed that the Rotterdam club have in fact decided to sign former Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield United striker Colin Kazim-Richards on a two-year deal from Bursaspor, as reported by FourFourTwo.

It has been previously reported by Voetbal International that any deal for Guidetti would rule out a move for Guidetti, and vice-versa, as the club are on a very strict wage limit.

If that truly is the case then it would appear Feyenoord may have given up hope of signing Guidetti, whose wages were proving problematic.

So should Celtic decide to keep him, it looks as though Feyenoord no longer pose a threat.
