Berlin, Sep 1 (IANS) Bayer Leverkusen have completed the transfer of young defender Panagiotis Retsos from Greek football club Olympiacos.
The 19-year-old defender will strengthen Bayer Leverkusen’s defence as the Greece youngster on Thursday agreed on a transfer after putting pen to paper on a deal until June 2022 on the deadline day of the transfer period, reports Xinhua news agency.
“Panagiotis Retsos received offers from other European top-flight clubs. It is therefore all the more pleasing for us that he opted for Leverkusen.
