Giorgos Giakoumakis is reported to be heading to Amsterdam to undergo a medical ahead of joining Urawa Red Diamonds.
The striker has been the subject of transfer speculation for two months after talks over an improved Celtic deal broke down.
Giakoumakis has sat out Celtic’s last two matches with the signing of Oh Hyeon gyu suggesting that the Greek striker was nearing the end of his hoops career.
Tonight The Sun reports:
GIORGOS GIAKOUMAKIS is poised to seal a £4million move to J-League side Urawa Red Diamonds.
The Celtic striker has been given permission to finalise terms and undergo a medical in Amsterdam.
David Friel is running the story, in February 2021 he was 10 hours ahead of the Stock Market with news that Neil Lennon had resigned from Celtic.
Over the last 12 months Giakoumakis has filled an important role for Celtic, leading the line in last season’s title success and proving to be a very able deputy for Kyogo Furuhashi this season.
Ange Postecoglou has take a very matter of fact view to transfer speculation, by signing up Oh he was clearly planning for life without Giakoumakis at Celtic.
Undergoing a medical doesn’t mean that the transfer is completed but unless Atalanta United quickly revive their offer it looks like the 28-year-old striker is about to reverse the trend and join the J-League.
