Huddersfield Town’s Spanish defender Gonzalo Avila, also known as Pipa, has signed a three-year deal with Greek champion Olympiakos, Pierre’s party announced.
A statement issued by Olympiacos late Thursday night did not disclose any financial details of the deal.
“I know Olympiacos has 47 championships, that the fans create a great atmosphere here, an atmosphere I can’t wait to experience and live,” said the 24-year-old former Espanyol player.
“My personal goal is to develop as a footballer, to gain experience, to help the team as much as I can. That’s why I came and my goals will be what the club has decided and wants to win.
Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis also owns Nottingham Forest, who beat Avila Huddersfield Town in the EFL Championship game last month.
Avila has played 54 games and scored two goals for Huddersfield in two seasons.
He was also a member of the Spanish national team’s Under-19, 20 and 21 teams.
