Inter secure Panathinaikos teen

Inter have signed Panathinaikos right-back Georgios Vagiannidis, it’s reported by multiple sources, but he’s likely to be loaned out again immediately.

The 18-year-old is a product of the Panathinaikos academy, but his contract is due to expire this summer.

It means the Nerazzurri only had to pay €400,000 in training compensation in order to secure his services.

Sky Sport Italia report Vagiannidis has signed a four-year deal with Inter worth €300,000 per season.

Official: Macheda joins Panathinaikos

Former Italy Under-21 international Federico Macheda has officially signed for Panathinaikos.

The striker only just turned 27 last week, but the early promise of his career when leaving the Lazio youth academy to sign for Manchester United in 2007 has dissipated.

He had spells at Sampdoria, QPR, VfB Stuttgart, Doncaster Rovers, Birmingham City, Cardiff City, Nottingham Forest and most recently Serie B outfit Novara.

His contract expired in July and he was a free agent, so able to sign a three-year deal with Greek side Panathinaikos.

Cabezas move lost in translation!

A bizarre autocorrect translation has scuppered Atalanta’s attempts to loan Bryan Cabezas to Independiente.

The 20-year-old Colombian joined Atalanta from Independiente in the summer of 2016.

He was loaned out to Panathinaikos this term, but the Greek club is having financial problems and interrupted the deal six months early.

Cabezas was reportedly all due to return to Independiente on loan until June when a bizarre contract mistranslation ruined everything.
