Hertha target Hinkel swoop

09 January 2010 11:42
Hertha Berlin head coach Friedhelm Funkel has confirmed that his club are keen to sign defender Andreas Hinkel from Celtic. The 27-year-old former Sevilla and Stuttgart full-back is wanted by Hertha as they try to pull clear of trouble at the wrong end of the Bundesliga table. Funkel told the Daily Express: "Hinkel would be an excellent addition to our team for the second part of the season and while I have not spoken personally to him, I know from other people that he would not reject a move back to Germany. "If something could be agreed then I would be happy, but Hertha is not a super-rich side and Celtic may not want to sell him. "So who knows what the outcome will be at this stage."
