Official: Berg completes Panathinaikos move

Panathinaikos have announced the signing of Hamburg striker Marcus Berg for an undisclosed fee.

The Sweden international has penned a four-year deal with the Athens outfit, as they look to overhaul their squad following their failure to qualify for European competition last season for the first time in 16 years.

“Panathinaikos Football Club is delighted to announce that it has reached an agreement with the Swedish international football player, Marcus Berg, with the signing of a four-year contract,” a statement read on the club’s official website.

Berg becomes the club’s fourth signing this summer, joining David Mendes da Silva, Emir Bajrami and Georgios Koutroubis as they hope to rebuild after their disappointing season.

The 26-year-old joined Hamburg in 2009, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances over the course of three seasons with the club, during which he was hindered by lingering injuries and a loss of form. He spent the 2010/11 season on loan with PSV.
