Celtic goalkeeper Vasilias Barkas has once again been linked with a move away from the club, this time with reported interest from Greek side PAOK as they weigh up a loan move.

As reported by the Daily Record, the club is supposedly looking to send the 26-year old out on loan, in an attempt to try and up as value because at this stage that may be hard to recuperate much of the £5 million the club spent on the keeper in the summer.

PAOK are the latest name to be linked with a move for Barkas, with teams from Holland and Belgian also reportedly interested.

Reports during the week also suggested that his former side, AEK Athens had enquired about bringing him back to the club. However, it was suggested he is not looking to head back to his homeland and would rather stay in Scotland or go elsewhere in Europe.

Currently, Barkas still has three years left on his deal at Parkhead, so it is likely he will still be contracted to Celtic in some form next season. Whether that is at the club or out on loan remains to be seen.

His future is still in the air as we wait to see who the new manager of the club is going forward. There might be a chance for the former AEK man to stake a place if he can turn around his fortunes under new management.
