Pulido announces he’ll play for Levadiakos

The Mexican striker has been left in limbo since the summer after a contract dispute with Liga MX side Tigres.
The saga involving Mexico striker Alan Pulido appears to have come to a temporary conclusion, with the 23-year-old announcing Thursday he is set to play for Levadiakos in Greece's Superleague.

Pulido has not featured in a competitive game since June 7 and was left in limbo following the World Cup after a contract dispute with Liga MX outfit Tigres.

The Mexican federation ruled in favor of the club in December, with Pulido presumably in the process of getting a temporary pass from the Court of Arbitration for Sport to allow him to play for Levadiakos.

"The behavior of my ex-team hasn't allowed me to play soccer for eight months and took away many opportunities to achieve my dream of playing in Europe," wrote Pulido on his Twitter account Thursday morning. "Now my new team Levadiakos is giving me the opportunity to get back to football and keep working hard to achieve my dreams."

Press reports from Greece earlier this week suggested that Pulido would sign for Olympiakos and then be loaned out to Levadiakos, but there has been no suggestion thus far that is the case.

Pulido went to the 2014 World Cup with Mexico after netting four goals in his first 286 minutes of action with El Tri's first team.

Levadiakos is currently in 14th place in the 18-team first division.
