Celtic: Hoops set to make loss on Vasilis Barkas

Celtic: Hoops set to make loss on Vasilis Barkas -Celtic

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.

The 27-year-old has made just one Celtic appearance under Ange Postecoglou and hasn’t been seen in a Scottish Premiership matchday squad since the opening weekend.

Barkas made an error against FC Midtjylland in a Champions League qualifier back in July, and it seems as if that could be his 23rd and final appearance for the Hoops.

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.

He’s clearly not in Postecoglou’s plans after being axed following a Parkhead blunder, with Joe Hart coming in and quickly becoming first choice.

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.
