Celtic: Barkas doesn’t want late exit

Celtic: Barkas doesn’t want late exit -Celtic

Celtic goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas doesn’t want to return to Greece, according to journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos

The Lowdown: Barkas’ summer

Barkas who cost the Hoops £4.5m last summer, made a costly mistake against FC Midtjylland in the first leg of Celtic’s Champions League qualifier and hasn’t featured since.

Celtic have signed Joe Hart this summer from Tottenham and were reportedly happy to let Barkas depart either on loan or in a permanent deal.

However, it seems as if the player doesn’t fancy leaving the club late in the window.

What should Celtic do with Barkas?







The Latest: Chorianopoulos post

Greek reporter Chorianopoulos was asked by @aboutceltic for an update over a possible exit regarding Barkas late on Monday evening.

He replied, admitting the goalkeeper’s agents have worked for an offer with PAOK interested. However, Barkas doesn’t want to return to Greece at this moment in time, according to Chorianopoulos.

“No sign at the moment that Barkas will leave Celtic. Even though his agents worked for an offer, at the moment nothing concrete. PAOK were interested, but Barkas doesn’t want to come back. Let’s see…”

How many of these forgotten Celtic flops can you recognise? First up, who's this?

The Verdict: One to move on?

With Hart arriving earlier in the window and establishing himself as first choice under Ange Postecoglou, it could make sense to move a goalkeeper on.

At the minute, Postecoglou has Barkas, Scott Bain and Conor Hazard all sitting around at Parkhead, so moving one out on loan or on a permanent could be the right idea.

However, that doesn’t look as if it will be Barkas at this moment in time.
