Matt Derbyshire signs for Olympiakos

Greek club,Olympiakos have signed Rovers' striker Matt Derbyshire on a four year deal.

He arrived in Athens on Tuesday and passed a medical there and then.

The striker spent the latter stages of last season with the Greek club on loan and was overjoyed with the deal being made permanent.

He said :

I am very happy with this transfer. I wanted to stay at Olympiakos. I hope to improve myself and become much better next season. I want to score more goals with Olympiakos.

With Roque Santa Cruz and now Matt Derbyshire leaving for Manchester City and Olympiacos respectively, Rovers are in a crunch situation as far as attackers are concerned.
