Colin Kazim-Richards' career is set for yet another twist, with the English born Turkey international set to sign for Brazilian giants Corinthians.
'The Coca-Cola Kid', so dubbed because he was signed for Brighton and Hove Albion in a £250,000 deal as part of a competition run by the soft drinks company in 2005, is currently plying his trade with Coritiba, where he has been for just six months after a six month spell at Celtic earlier in the year.

Kazim-Richards' career has already taken in spells with Bury, Brighton, Sheffield United, Fenerbahce, Toulouse, Galatasaray, Olympiacos, Blackburn Rovers, Bursaspor aaaaand (breathes) Feyernoord before his move to Celtic Park in January, will make the six time Brazilian champions his thirteenth club in just 12 years.
The former Celtic man was ditched by Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers over the Summer after a disappointing spell under previous manager Ronny Deila during the first half of the year, scoring just two goals in 13 appearances for the Scottish champions.
Kazim-Richards hasn't fared much better at Coritiba, finding the back of the net twice in 11 appearances for the club.
At just 30 years of age, how many more clubs around the world can Kazim-Richards fit in before calling it a day?
