Hinkel ponders Celtic future
Bhoys boss Neil Lennon has said he will consider bids for the German right-back, who has one year left to run on his contract.
Lennon has already indicated new signing Cha Du-Ri will replace Hinkel as his first-choice right-back this season, leaving the former Stuttgart defender's future up in the air.
"I don't know where I will be when the season starts," said the 28 year old.
"Everyone knows the situation. I have one year left on my contract.
"I spoke to the manager about it and I am still here now but I have one year left.
"We will see what happens by the end of the transfer window.
"I want to stay here but because I have one year left, the club might want to sell me.
"If I don't go because no-one is interested then I will stay."
