Celtic: Vasilis Barkas set for summer exit

Celtic: Vasilis Barkas set for summer exit -Celtic News

Celtic goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas is likely to leave the club in the summer, according to journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos.

The Lowdown: Ajeti news

Barkas isn’t the first player to be linked with a summer exit this month, with the Hoops telling forward Albian Ajeti he is free to find a new club at the end of the season.

The striker isn’t thought to be in Ange Postecoglou’s plans, playing just under 300 minutes of Premiership action all season, and Barkas has also been frozen out at Parkhead.

The goalkeeper has made just two appearances in all competitions, and he too looks like he could finally seal a move away over the coming months.

The Latest: Barkas to follow?

Greek journalist Chorianopoulos took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to provide the latest on Barkas’ situation, claiming that the player’s representatives are already on the lookout for options.

“Seems that Barkas will leave Celtic in summer. His side are checking options from now.”

The Verdict: Needed

Exits for Ajeti and Barkas in the summer appear to be needed, as they are clearly not fancied by Postecoglou and are earning £18,000-a-week and £9,000-a-week respectively.

Barkas, labelled as ‘horrendous’ by pundit Tam McManus, hasn’t lived up to expectations following his £4.5m move, with McManus also labelling the shot-stopper as a ‘waste of money’.

A permanent exit would be best for all involved, however, the Hoops may have to accept a loss on the goalkeeper, especially with his Transfermarkt valuation dropping from £4.5m to £1.35m in recent years.
