OFFICIAL: Michael Olaitan Joins Panionios

Panionios have beaten fellow Greek side Levadiakos to the signing of Olympiakos forward Michael Olaitan on a free transfer.

Olaitan who still has one year to run on his deal was allowed to leave on a free transfer by the Greek side and Panionios won the race for his signature despite the fact that Levadiakos were initially the front runners for his signature.

23 year old Olaitan spent is looking to bounce back to the form that once made him the toast of Greek Football in 2014 before an on field slump in the derby game against Panathinaikos.

Last season two different loan spells at Dutch side FC Twente and Belgium top division side Kortrijk making a total of 22 appearances scoring two goals in the process.

Panionios will be his fourth team in Greece after starting out with Veria before moving to Olympiakos where he spent six months on loan to Ergotelis upon his recovery from the unfortunate on field slump that slowed down his carrer.
