Atlanta United are still looking to sign Giorgos Giakoumakis according to Anthony Joseph.
There have been various reports about the state of play regarding the striker with claims about undergoing a medical in Amsterdam ahead of signing for Urawa Red Diamonds.
It would be an unusual career move for a 28-year-old to switch from Europe to Asia but that seems to be the route that Giakoumakis is on.
UPDATE: Giorgos Giakoumakis (pictured at the airport yesterday) has passed a medical in The Netherlands, ahead of a proposed move to Urawa Red Diamonds.

Atlanta are widely reported to have offered to take Giakoumakis on loan which seems to be of little benefit to Celtic.
News that their signing target has undergone a medical to move to Japan could force a change of heart with the MLS side, for a fee of £4m getting a ready made striker seems like outstanding value.
With Oh Hyeon-gyu signed and settling in there seems little likelihood of a way back for Giakoumakis at Celtic.
