Despite Venlo’s relegation from the Eredivisie Giakoumakis finished as top scorer in the league with 26 goals in 30 appearances.
After arriving last summer from AEK Athens for around £300,000 it seems that the player and club have decided to cash in with his current contract expiring next May.
News of the deal nearing completion comes at the same time as Rubin Kazan and Bordeaux are reported to have tabled bids of £15.4m for Odsonne Edouard.
With four days left in the transfer window it looks like there is still a lot of business to be completed at Celtic.
