Celtic: Hoops agree fee for Georgios Giakoumakis

Celtic: Hoops agree fee for Georgios Giakoumakis -Celtic

Celtic have agreed on a fee with VVV-Venlo for striker Georgios Giakoumakis, according to transfer expert Duncan Castles.

The Lowdown: Postecoglou call

Reports earlier in the week from Castles linked the Hoops with a move for the Greece international.

He suggested that Ange Postecoglou personally called the 26-year-old over a potential move to Parkhead and is playing a central role in the club’s attempts to sign the striker.

Giakoumakis, who is also wanted by Werder Bremen, was left impressed with Postecoglou’s approach and it now seems as if a transfer is one step closer.

The Latest: Castles’ post

Castles, known for his role on The Transfer Window Podcast, took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to share an update.

He revealed that the two clubs have agreed on a fee, with Giakoumakis, described as ‘special’ in the Netherlands, set to discuss personal terms with the Hoops.

“Celtic have now agreed a transfer fee with VVV-Venlo for Georgios Giakoumakis. Due to discuss personal terms with the Greece international.”

The Verdict: Edouard now on the way out?

Reports at the beginning of the month suggested that Celtic wanted a ‘keeper, right-back, midfielder and winger before the end of the month.

They have added to two areas with Joe Hart and James McCarthy, however, with the club now moving for an out-and-out centre-forward in Giakoumakis, perhaps Odsonne Edouard will now seal a Hoops exit before the window slams shut.

He’s been working on a move away after his transfer to Leicester City fell through, so Giakoumakis’ arrival could then give Celtic the green light to sell Edouard.
