“I know that Olympiakos has 47 championships, that supporters create a great atmosphere here, an atmosphere that I can’t wait to feel and live,” the 24-year-old former Espanyol player said.

“My personal goal is to develop as a footballer, to gain experience, to help the team as much as I can. That’s why I have come and my goals will be those that the club has set and wants to conquer.”

Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis also owns Nottingham Forest, which beat Avila’s Huddersfield Town in the EFL Championship game last month.
