Celtic goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas is set for a move away from Parkhead in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a claim made by Giannis Chorianopoulos, with the journalist revealing in a post on Twitter that the 27-year-old shot-stopper looks to be on his way out of Parkhead, with the Bhoys looking to part ways with the Greek international this winter on either a temporary or permanent basis.
In his tweet, Chorianopoulos said: “Vasilis Barkas is about to leave from Celtic [in] January. On loan or permanent.”
Considering just how little Barkas has featured for Celtic since his £4.5m move to Glasgow in the summer of 2020, in addition to, when the goalkeeper has featured, how poor the Greece international has looked for the club, the news that the shot-stopper is set to move onto pastures new this January will undoubtedly leave Celtic fans buzzing.
As a result of these disappointing performances, Celtic made a move to sign Joe Hart in the summer transfer window, with the former England international’s arrival all but confirming the end of Barkas’ career at Parkhead – with the shot-stopper having made just one appearance under Ange Postecoglou this season.
As such, considering the fact that the Greek international is still collecting his £9k-per-week wage in Glasgow, despite appearing to have very little chance of featuring for the Hoops once again, the news that Celtic are planning to offload the goalkeeper in the upcoming transfer window is undoubtedly positive for the club – as Barkas is rather stealing a living at present.
