Celtic look set to make a considerable loss when it comes to parting ways with goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas, Football Insider report.
The Lowdown: Barkas open to exit
The Hoops look set to be in for a busy January window when it comes to incomings and outgoings, with Barkas possibly one of the latter.
Sky Sports reporter Anthony Joseph claimed earlier this month that a number of Turkish sides are interested in the 6 foot 5 Greek goalkeeper, who is ‘open’ to a loan or permanent exit in January.
The Latest: Hoops to make a loss
Football Insider shared a story on Sunday evening, with pundit Alex McLeish giving his thoughts on Barkas’ future.
The story cited Sky Sports’ claim before adding their own information that ‘any deal would represent a considerable shortfall on the £5million the Hoops paid for Barkas’ last year.
The Verdict: No surprise…
Barkas hasn’t exactly been a shrewd signing by the Hoops, with former boss Neil Lennon, who brought him to the club, believing he failed to settle in Scotland.
Barkas’ Transfermarkt valuation has dropped to £2.52m during his time in Scotland, so recouping half of the £5m figure they paid AEK Athens could be the best Celtic can manage in any permanent move.
