Derbyshire Completes Olympiacos Move
Blackburn striker Matt Derbyshire has completed his move to Olympiacos, where he will play until the end of the season.
The England Under 21 star has struggled to win a regular place in the Rovers side this term and has stated he sees this as a chance ot get some first team agmes under his belt in order to win a long term starting spot at the club he has supported since being a child.
Derbyshire, speaking to Sky Sports, said - 'I am excited at the prospect of joining such a big club as Olympiacos and when I found out about the possibility of moving there, it was something I looked at,'
'I saw they were top of the league and I have been told by various people they are the biggest club in Greece with fanatical fans. I had the opportunity to stay in England as other clubs were interested in me, but I fancied this opportunity to join one of Europe's biggest clubs.
'It gives me the chance to play in Europe and experience a different culture and I am really looking forward to it.'
Derbyshire is definitely a fan favourite at Ewood and will be back better off for his experience abroad I am sure.
Do us proud Matt.
