Official: Finnbogason to Olympiacos

Real Sociedad have announced the departure of striker Alfred Finnbogason to Olympiacos on a season-long loan.

The Greek champions also have the option of purchasing the 26-year-old next summer for a reported fee in the region of €7m if they wish to keep him.

Finnbogason joined La Real from Heerenven amidst considerable fanfare last summer, having finished 2013-14 as the Eredivisie’s top goalscorer with 29 strikes.

However, he scored just three goals in all competitions, and the Basques have no qualms with losing the player if he regains his form in Greece as they are expected to recoup most, if not all, of their €7.5m outlay.

The Iceland international is now due to undergo a medical in Athens after being left out of La Real’s 21-man squad for their friendly against Toulouse.
