German international full-back Andreas Hinkel has agreed a January transfer to Celtic, BBC Sport understands.

The attacking right-back will move from Spanish club Sevilla, who he joined from Stuttgart in June 2006.

The 25-year-old had been talking to Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund after submitting a transfer request.

But Hinkel, capped 17 times, has been to Glasgow and passed a medical and will be eligible to play when Celtic entertain Rangers on 2 January.

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan has been short of a right-back because of injuries to Mark Wilson and Jean-Joel Perrier Doumbe.

Central defender Gary Caldwell has filled that position in recent games.

"Hinkel isn't getting the continuity he needs, because he's competing with Daniel Alves, the best right back in the world," Sevilla sports director Ramon Rodriguez told the club website.
