Algeria international Hilal Soudani has completed a move to Greek giants Olympiacos.
The record 44-time Super League champions officially announced the signing of the 31-year-old on Tuesday.
Soudani joins Olympiacos from English club side Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee. The forward endured an unhappy one-year stay at the club with injury forcing him out for the majority of the campaign.
Prior to his time in Nottingham, Soudani established himself as a dominant scorer at Croatian club side Dinamo Zagreb where he netted 86 goals in 196 appearances across all competitions.
Soudani, who has scored 22 goals in 49 games for Algeria, missed out on selection for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
