Villarreal defender Ivan Marcano set to join Olympiakos on loan

The out-of-favour Spanish Under-21 international is set for a second loan spell, this time in Greece
Villarreal have announced they have reached an agreement with Olympiakos for the loan transfer of defender Ivan Marcano to the Greek side.

The Spanish defender will finalise a switch to Olympiakos in the next few days, subject to him passing a medical.

Marcano joined Villarreal from Racing Santander in the summer of 2009, and after a season in which he featured infrequently for the club, he was loaned out to Getafe.

At the Greek club, Marcano will reunite with coach Ernesto Valverde and with former team-mates David Fuster and Ariel Ibagaza.

With this move, Olympiakos, who won the Greek league, have signed their fourth Spanish player, following the additions of Fuster, Javito and Albert Riera.
