Colin Kazim-Richards is set to play football in a SEVENTH different country

The former Sheffield United striker is set to leave Celtic for Brazil

Well travelled man

We’ve heard the term journeyman for players who amass a huge collection of clubs throughout their careers but I think football fans will have to come up with a different term for ex-Celtic striker Colin Kazim-Richards looks set to complete a move to Brazilian side Cortiba, meaning that Brazil will be his SEVENTH country he has played in. 

Kazim is a Turkish international but he was born and raised in London. 

During an eventful youth career, he spent time with QPR, Arsenal and Bury before signing on professional forms with Bury. 

He then moved onto Brighton & Hove Albion starting a journey across the world that took in Sheffield United, Fenerbahce and Olympiacos. 

The striker is part of the massive clear-out at Celtic Park from new boss Brendan Rodgers who is also thought to have put other strikers Anthony Stokes and Carlton Cole up for grabs.

Not Carlton, Brendan!
