      Liverpool complete signing of Kostas Tsimikas


      Chris Shaw@__ChrisShaw

      Liverpool FC have completed the signing of left-back Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos on a long-term contract.

      The 24-year-old Greece international, capped three times by his country, joins the Premier League champions after penning a deal at Melwood today.

      Tsimikas made his senior debut for Olympiacos in December 2015 and went on to make 86 appearances for the Greek side in all competitions.

      More than half of those games came in 2019-20 as the defender helped his club reclaim the domestic title by an 18-point margin.

      He will now link up with his new teammates as Jürgen Klopp’s squad prepare for the upcoming campaign and defence of their Premier League title.

      “I’m very happy, I’m very proud to be here. For me, [it’s] the biggest club in the world. It’s an honour to be here and I will give my best,” Tsimikas told Liverpoolfc.com in an exclusive interview after completing his transfer.

      “The league here, I like a lot. I watch it on the TV and it was always one dream I had from when I was a kid to come to play in this league and to come through.

      “With a lot of work and focus on what I do and what the coach wants, and every day working hard in training, I can be on the highest level.

      “[I want] to achieve [our] goals. To win the league again and also to win the Champions League.”

      Tsimikas spent time on loan at Danish outfit Esbjerg and Dutch side Willem II earlier in his career, starting all but two league games for the latter in the 2017-18 campaign.

      He earned a senior international debut for Greece in October 2018 having also represented his country at U19 and U21 level previously.

      The defender will wear the No.21 shirt for Liverpool.

      Nice one. Seems a good bit of business. LB sorted, now CB and a winger (or two).

      All the media reports saying he's coming next week for a medical, or "in the next few days".

      Love it that we get things done under the radar like this.
      As it should be.

      Super player, very sad he is leaving Olympiacos to become a back up at Liverpool. However, he was once a back up at Olympiacos too and forced his way into the 11. Blue chip player. Any team would be happy to have him.

      Very clever of Liverpool to sign this player. In Greece he was superb but best not to judge on that. He dominated in the CL and Europa games against big teams. Superb player, has everything.

      Under the radar? Literally been reports for the last couple days saying it would be done today or tomorrow. This is actually been one of our “loudest” periods of time between pursuing this kid and the Lewis kid from Norwich.

      Great to see we've filled a position in the squad that everyone felt needed done.

      Never seen him kick a ball but our record in the market is so good I'm not one bit concerned.

      Looking forward to seeing him play.

      Sounds like we could be after Real Betis centre-back Zouhair Feddal, would be about €5m and he'd be happy to be backup apparently. If we can get that done as well then surely we'll have enough left over to get a high quality winger, someone like Sarr or Traore. If we get all 3 areas sorted out then I'll be a very happy chappy.

      Yeh me too.  We have to take a leaf out of Shitty of last season and not leave ourselves exposed at centre back.  We have Matip that is injury prone too.  Add a good forward am not bothered who? the club scouts I have full confidence in.  Whether they spend 10m or 80m not bothered or concerned in the last few years they haven't let us down.

      Not worried about his survival, but apparently be has been withdrawn from the Greek squad and sent to Merseyside?????

      Would he face a mandatory quarantine?

      This also has me wondering about reports of a positive test in the Austrian training camp. Could he have picked it up there? Let's hope we aren't looking at an outbreak.

      I very much doubt it.

      I think the training camp story was nothing more than that, a story

      He will have to quarantine for 14 days when he returns yes


      2-3 times a week not daily

      A hell of a lot more testing than us mere mortals anyway, so they would catch a spread very quickly.
