Bayern's Van Buyten would consider Celtic move

Celtic target Daniel van Buyten admits he would consider a loan move to the Parkhead club.

The 29-year-old Belgian defender, out of favour at Bayern Munich, is wanted by Hoops boss Gordon Strachan.

Van Buyten will hold talks with the German club this week but with coach Ottmar Hitzfeld leaving in the summer to be replaced by Jurgen Klinsmann, a loan deal could be the best Bayern will offer unless Celtic match a reported 4million valuation.

Van Buyten told the Scottish Sun: 'Celtic is one of my options.

'I have not spoken with them but I know their coach has asked for details about me.

'Scotland is a fabulous country for football and the atmosphere is great.

'I arrived at Bayern with great hopes. My objective was to win a fight to win a place in the team and play in every match.

'Unfortunately, this has not been possible and I am unhappy about the situation.

'I'm working very hard every day but the coach doesn't seem to have confidence in me.

'After I speak with Bayern I will know my future but I will discount nothing.

'There's also interested clubs in England but the final decision is down to Bayern.'
