Argentinean striker Javier Saviola has signed a two-year contract with Greek Super League outfit Olympiacos.

Olympiacos confirmed the move on Wednesday, with the 31-year-old introduced to hundreds of the club’s supporters in Piraeus.

Saviola – who will wear the number 9 shirt at the club – was a free agent after leaving La Liga outfit Malaga in the close-season.

He scored nine goals in 37 appearances in all competitions last term, and featured six times in the UEFA Champions League.

Saviola – who counts Real Madrid, Barcelona and Benfica as some of his former clubs – was also linked with a switch to English Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

But he sealed his future on Wednesday, signing a deal that will boost Greek football after a tumultuous period in which several of the league’s big names have left due to the country’s well-documented financial problems.
