‘£5 Million Would Be A Steal’ ‘Brilliant News’ Celtic Fans On Social Media Delighted By Latest Transfer Development

Celtic have tabled an improved bid in the region of £5m for AEK Athens goalkeeper Vasilios Barkas, according to reports in the Greek media.

The Hoops were said to have had an initial £3.2m offer turned down for the 26-year-old, but they are hopeful that the second proposal will be enough to seal a deal.

It is believed Barkas has already agreed personal terms with the Scottish champions and fans on Twitter are hoping that the move can now be finalised:

It remains to be seen if AEK will accept the new bid. It had been claimed that the Greek Super League club were looking for a fee in the region of €7m (£6.3m) so Celtic’s offer is still below the asking price.

Neil Lennon’s side are seemingly stepping up their attempts to sign a new number one, though, which is not before time considering the new season is fast approaching.
