The 25 year old Turkish-born player joined Celtic in 2015 on a four- year deal after an impressive spell at Dundee United, but failed to establish himself at Parkhead.

He was subsequently loaned out to Eskişehirspor in Turkey in January 2016 and Polish side Pogoń Szczecin a year later.

Last summer Argyle’s Scottish manager Derek Adams took Ciftci on a season-long loan deal but he has made just six starts and two substitute appearances without finding the net.

Plymouth have cancelled the loan deal, with Motherwell expected to be the player’s next temporary home.

Motherwell are looking to replace top goalscorer Louis Moult, who joined Preston North End, and Ciftci will fight it out with new recruit Curtis Main from Portsmouth for a starting jersey.
