Celtic have knocked back a loan offer from AEK Athens for goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas.
That’s according to reliable Greek reporter Giannis Chorianopoulos, who shared the news on Friday evening.
Barkas not interested in a return to Greece
Barkas isn’t keen on a return to his native country and, as a result, Celtic didn’t consider a temporary move away.
Should Celtic sign a new goalkeeper this summer?
Transfer Tavern take
It seems as if Celtic have made a transfer U-turn regarding Barkas.
However, with Barkas looking likely to stay in Glasgow, he’ll be looking to establish himself as a regular between now and the end of the season ahead of Scott Bain and Conor Hazard.
Perhaps Eddie Howe, who looks set to become Neil Lennon’s long-term successor, likes what he sees in Barkas? Only time will tell.
