The twists and turns in the Giorgos Giakoumakis transfer are back in action with reports of a fresh offer from Atlanta United.
Last night Johnny Georgopoulos of SDNA in Greece reported that the striker had returned to Glasgow from a medical in Amsterdam that had been arranged by Urawa Red Diamonds.
At that stage it seemed like the J-League side were the only one to meet Celtic’s asking fee but it seems that development has stirred Atalanta United to review their offer for the Greek internationalist.

On most criteria a move to Atlanta United would be preferable to Giakoumakis who speaks near perfect English.
The arrival of Oh Hyeon-gyu at Celtic this week seemed to close the door on a u-turn with just the destination or continent of his next club to be decided.
Despite training with Celtic this week it is unlikely that Giakoumakis will be in the Celtic squad at Dundee United tomorrow.
