Scum sign Tamas


Recommended Posts

Gabriel Tamas' protracted proposed move from Auxerre to Celtic could be decided one way or another this week.

The two clubs have still not agreed a transfer fee for the 24-year-old Romania defender.

And Tamas' agent Florin Manea told BBC Sport: "We are hoping to find out more on Monday.

"He wants to go to Celtic, but right now it's up to the clubs to come to an agreement. We are probably going to know if it will happen this week."

Manea denied that it was the player's personal terms that had held up the conclusion of the deal.

Three other clubs remain hopeful of signing Tamas should his move to Gordon Strachan's Scottish champions fall through - one from Italy, one from the Netherlands and one from his homeland.

The Romanian outfit would only be looking for a loan deal, while Auxurre are thought to be seeking around £3.5m for the defender who joined from Spartak Moscow last summer.

Tamas, who had joined the Russians from Turkish outfit Galatasaray, played every minute of his country's three group matches at Euro 2008 and now has 35 caps.

During his time with Spartak, he had loan spells with Dinamo Bucharest and Celta Vigo.
