Esteban Cambiasso joins Greek champions Olympiakos

Greek champions Olympiakos have announced the signing of Esteban Cambiasso following the expiry of his Leicester City contract.

The 34-year-old midfielder arrives in Piraeus on a one-year contract, with the option of a further season, following a short spell in the Premier League and will now get the chance to play Champions League football.

The former Argentina international played 33 times in all competitions last year, scoring on five occasions, and was named as Leicester’s Player of the Year but rejected the option of staying for a further season.

In a short statement on their official website, the club confirmed the transfer, stating: “Olympiacos FC announce the beginning of their collaboration with the international Argentine footballer Esteban Cambiasso.”

Cambiasso has enjoyed a decorated career, winning domestic titles in Spain and Italy at Real Madrid and Inter respectively, while also lifting the Champions League with the latter under Jose Mourinho.
