Vasilis Barkas could still leave Celtic on loan this summer, with Greek journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos claiming ‘everything is on the table’.
The Lowdown: Barkas under Postecoglou
Barkas, who the Hoops signed last summer in a deal worth £4.5m, began Ange Postecoglou’s tenure as Celtic boss as first choice.
Chorianopoulos described Barkas’ performance as a ‘catastrophe’, and it appears as if may still leave Parkhead this summer.
What should Celtic do with Barkas?
The Latest: Chorianopoulos’ tweet
Journalist Chorianopoulos took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon to provide an update on the 27-year-old.
He suggested that Postecoglou’s plans were with Barkas as his number one, however, his displays, along with the links to Joe Hart, are making things complicated.
Chorianopoulos suggested that if a club express an interest in Barkas, the Hoops will demand a loan fee for his services.
“Postecoglou plans were with Barkas No1. Midtjylland match was a catastrophe and Hart’s transfer making things complicated. Everything is on the table atm. If a club express interest (not for a permanent transfer) Celtic will demand loan fee.”
The Verdict: Loan to make sense?
He still has three years left on his contract, so having the chance to get regular football elsewhere may help in the long run.
A positive stint out on loan could save his Celtic career, or it may help the Hoops receive a fee close to the £4.5m they paid for the ‘keeper, should they wish to cash in next summer.
