Celtic's Giakoumakis joins Atlanta

Celtic striker Giorgos Giakoumakis has joined MLS side Atalanta on a four-year deal in a move worth more than £4m.

The Greece international agreed personal terms with the club at the start of last week, with the deal to take him from Parkhead now finally completed

Atlanta will pay Celtic a guaranteed £3.5m, with a further £800,000 in add-ons.

The move ends a long saga for Giakoumakis' signature. He had already passed a medical with Japanese side Urawa Red Diamonds during the January Transfer Window.

"Giorgos is a player who's been on the club's radar for a while and we're excited to bring him to Atlanta," Atlanta vice president and technical director Carlos Bocanegra said.
