Done Deal As Giakoumakis Seals MLS Move

Reports are coming out from Greece tonight that Atlanta United from the MLS have completed the signing of Celtic striker Giorgos Giakoumakis.

The transfer is expected to be officially announced in the coming days.

The fee being reported for Giakoumakis is up to £4.3m (£3.5m plus £800k ad ons).

I agree with the majority of fans that feel Celtic should have gotten more money from the deal, but we’ve known for a good while now that they fee was low, so personally, I’ve come to terms with it.

And we already have Korean striker Oh in the building now who cost around £2.7m, so theoretically, we’ve already replaced Giakoumakis for less money.

However, many ‘in the know’ believe Ange still wants one more striker, either this window or in the summer, with the club still apparently keen on Korean striker Cho Gue-sung.

It could well be an interesting last day or so of this window.
