BREAKING: Liverpool Signs Defender, Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos

Liverpool FC this evening has announced the signing of defender, Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos.

The club made this known a while ago on their web site.

Tsimikas, 24,Greece international will man the left-back position, a critical position the club feels the player would leave up to expectations.

The young lad made his debut for Olympiacos ib December 2015 with 86 appearances in all competitions.

Tsimikas helped his former club reclaim the Greek domestic league in the 2019-20 season by an 18-point margin.

He is expected to join the rest of his new team mates as they prepare for the new season campaign.

“I am very happy, I’m very proud to be here. For me, it’s the biggest club in the world. It’s an honour to be here and I will give my best,” Tsimikas told Liverpoolfc.com in an exclusive interview after completing his transfer.

“The league here, I like a lot. I watch it on the TV and it was always one dream I had from when I was a kid to come to play in this league and to come through.

“With a lot of work and focus on what I do and what the coach wants, and every day working hard in training, I can be on the highest level.

“I want to achieve [our] goals. To win the league again and also to win the Champions League, said Tsimikas.

Tsimikas spent time on loan at Danish outfit Esbjerg and Dutch side Willem II earlier in his career, starting all but two league games for the latter in the 2017-18 campaign.

He earned a senior international debut for Greece in October 2018 having also represented his country at U19 and U21 level previously.

The defender will wear the No.21 shirt for Liverpool.
