Theirs a stand-off between Celtic and the Greek boy of about £2,500 a week in wages.
Looking at reports, Celtic have offered the Greek boy over X12 his original salary.
He must be looking for 15 times more than his current wage from his Dutch club.
Celtic have agreed almost £3 million transfer fee with his club.
Should Celtic give him the extra wage demand?

Think that salary would be cut and dried if he was a proven, prolific striker, but maybe there's a bit of doubt from our end?
Hope both parties can come to an agreement, very soon if Ange has asked for him specifically.

Going by his wage he was getting at venlo this looks to be his first big payday and looking to get all he can .

{Ed007's Note - I'm starting to think it's maybe Celtic dragging their heels on the Giakoumakis deal. Is he their first choice or are they waiting on someone else deciding on a move to us? Is Giakoumakis only going to be signed if/when Edouard goes?
I just get the feeling if Celtic really wanted this deal done it could have been tied up a lot sooner.}

Could be Ed, he seems worth a punt if it's to supplement what we already have ie replace Griffiths or Ajeti but if Eddy goes I'd be hoping for someone a bit more proven.

26 Aug 2021 13:23:39
Agree with that ed.

Personally don’t see us buying him unless we ship a striker and not necessarily Eddie.

26 Aug 2021 13:39:12
Ship griff and even if eddy stays get a striker in now as eddy could go in jan.

26 Aug 2021 13:58:45
If he is as good as he clearly thinks he is surely there is some form of performance/ appearance wage structure that would suit both parties?

26 Aug 2021 14:17:53
That's a good point; as we currently have Eddy, Ajeti and Griffiths, with no apparent talk of concrete interest or indeed players pushing to leave. We probably need to make room and raise cash somehow?

26 Aug 2021 15:18:17
I reckon the Greek forward is a replacement for eddy . If he goes then we will sign him if he stays we won’t . Maybe the first time in a while we are being prepared rather than the old wait and see what’s left approach.

A can’t see the board wanting to right off close to 10 mill on the 2 signings from last year before signing anyone else I can understand them getting in hart as that was badly needed but we’re good in the striker area as we are just now .

I agree it looks as though this deal could have been done by now but I was more leaning on the player dragging his heels but I suppose it could be us for different reasons, do you think nisbet mark? .

{Ed007's Note - I'd be really surprised if Nisbet came in this month. I don't think Celtic will pay the money and I don't think he would sign unless he was guaranteed game time.}

26 Aug 2021 16:43:16
I've got a feeling nisbet will leave Hibs whether it's to some other club I don't know just a hunch, cheers. 👍.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

Agree Ed and bhoys, if the figures quoted are accurate then we either pay it and sign him or we don't and get another striker in.

There has to be more to it than £2,500 a week?

{Ed007's Note - I can't see us losing out an a player for £2500 a week if the stories are true that he already dropped his wage demands.}
