Ghana's Derek Boateng nears Olympiacos move

The Ghana midfielder is expected to undergo a medical this week with the Greece club ahead of a proposed move

Black Stars midfielder Derek Boateng is close to joining Greek giants Olympiacos on a three-month contract.

According to Sky Sports, the Greece side has neared the final stages of securing the Ghana international on a short deal with a two-year extension option after agreeing personal terms.

Boateng's proposed move to Fulham fell through on transfer deadline day in January due to a contract dispute after undergoing a medical.

The 29-year-old has previously had spells with Greece Kalamata, Panathinaikos and OFI Crete as well as Spanish side Getafe and Malaga.
