Greece: Olympiacos sign Björn Engels


In need for a replacement following the record-breaking transfer of wonderkid defender Panagiotis Retsos to Bayer Leverkusen, Olympiacos have signed Belgian youngster Björn Engels for €7m. The young centre back is expected to make his debut in the Greek Superleague in September, after five years playing for FC Bruges.

Björn Engels comes to the current Greek champions with the hope of helping them claim their eighth title in a row, bringing along an interesting yet well-balanced mixture of experience and youth; the tall Belgian youth international has already played over a hundred professional games between his club and national team.
