Nadir Ciftci says he is delighted to meet “brother” and former Dundee United teammate Jarosław Fojut again after joining Pogoń Szczecin on a loan agreement from Celtic until the end of the season.

Hoops coach Brendan Rodgers has allowed the Turkish forward to travel to Poland, using the 25-year-old in just four games this season.

In making the switch, Ciftci reunited with close friend Fojut with whom he played alongside Tannadie during the 2014/15 campaign and is delighted to see a familiar face in the locker room.

Ciftci, who is to make his debut in the Sunday match at Cracovia Kraków, said: It’s good that I already know Jarosław, we played together for Dundee United for a year, but we were like brothers.

“He looked after me and I looked after him, but he was obviously older.

“We have a very good relationship so I’m looking forward to working with him.

“I am very happy to be here and I hope to give the fans and the band all I can.

“I am very excited, it will be something new for me, a new challenge. I’m ready for it and I hope the fans are ready for it.

Fojut’s mid-half says his friend’s arrival is a coup d’état for Pogon.

He said: “I’m glad Nadir joined us, he has the necessary skills to make a difference in the Polish league.

“I was even a little surprised, but it’s good that Nadir didn’t want to sit on the bench at Celtic and that he prefers to play.”
