Arminia Bielefeld winger Robin Hack has admitted that he would be open to leaving the German club during the January transfer window.
Reports in the summer claimed that Hack rejected a switch to Celtic but the 24-year-old now says that, after turning down possible moves in the past, he will consider offers from other teams:
“If there was an option that would suit all sides, I would think about it. Nevertheless: It’s been fun in Bielefeld lately. Everyone wants to get the most out of their career and of course I want that too. I want to play in a top league. That can either happen at Arminia Bielefeld or another club. In the summer, there were one or two opportunities abroad, so we will see what happens in January.”
Hack was reportedly available for around €1.5m (£1.3m) in the summer and his asking price is unlikely to have changed that much. He has been in good form this season, having scored nine goals and provided six assists in all competitions but he is playing in Germany’s second division.
You also have to take into account that Celtic subsequently signed Sead Haksabanovic from Rubin Kazan after Hack rejected them. The Swedish international has had a decent start to his career at Parkhead so there isn’t really any real need to recruit another winger. Nonetheless, it appears that Hack will be available in January.
