Tamas lowers demands to actions Bhoys move

Auxerre defender Gabriel Tamas could yet join Celtic after dropping his wage demands, according to his agent. The Romania international's proposed move to the Scottish champions appeared to fall through last week after the Parkhead club reportedly baulked at the 24-year-old's personal terms. However, his agent Florin Manea insists the deal is still alive and can be finalised as soon as an issue surrounding the £3.5million transfer fee is settled. 'I spoke with Peter Lawwell (Celtic chief executive) on the phone first of all and then there was a meeting in Paris two weeks ago,' Manea told the Scottish Daily Express. 'But I've had no contact with Celtic since then and no word from anyone that the deal is on or off. 'However, I believe that there is still a chance a deal can be sorted out and there is a willingness from Gabriel to sort it out. 'I was surprised when it was reported that the agent's fee was a problem in the deal. 'That has not been discussed. It is also not accurate to say the player's terms are an issue. 'There was a difference in the first meeting but that is not causing a problem. 'The money Celtic want to pay and what Gabriel is ready to accept is very similar now. 'Celtic have to resolve an issue with Auxerre to make this transfer happen but once that is sorted the player will commit. 'Gabriel's preference is to join Celtic. 'That is why he was willing to reduce his own demands to make it happen.'
