VVV-Venlo striker Georgios Giakoumakis will undergo his Celtic medical in Paris on Sunday, according to journalist Johnny Georgopoulos.
The Lowdown: Fee agreed
The Hoops have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old for almost two weeks now.
Giakoumakis, on just €750-a-week (£642) with Venlo, could well become Dominic McKay’s 10th summer signing in his first window as CEO, and it seems as if a move has taken a further step forward ahead of Tuesday’s deadline.
Should Celtic sell Odsonne Edouard this summer?
Yes, time for him to go!
No, keep hold of him!
The Latest: Sunday medical
According to Georgopoulos, Giakoumakis will undergo his medical in France on Sunday.
The journalist revealed that he has accepted Celtic’s offer and that it would now be a ‘big surprise’ if he didn’t make the move to Glasgow.
The Verdict: Edouard to depart?
With Giakoumakis now likely to join Celtic, that could mean that Odsonne Edouard will get the Parkhead exit he has wanted since April.
The Hoops have Crystal Palace, Bordeaux and Rubin Kazan all interested in a late auction for the Frenchman, and it seems as if a deal could be on the cards with the 23-year-old into the final 12 months of his contract.
The pending arrival of Giakoumakis may well give Edouard the green light to move away, so it looks set to be an interesting last few days of the window.
