OFFICIAL: Fortuna Dusseldorf announce Papadopoulos capture
- Updated: July 11, 2012
The newly-promoted Bundesliga side have landed want-away ‘keeper Nikos Papadopoulos on a free transfer from Greek Champions Olympiacos…
The 22-year-old Papadopoulos never managed to see a top-flight game at Olympiacos as he failed to win a place ahead of regular starters Balazs Megyeri and Roy Carroll last season, and Antonis Nikopolidis the year prior.
An announcement on the club’s official website confirmed the signing of the Attica native, who up until this point has spent his entire professional career with Olympiacos. According to the press release, Papadopoulos has signed a two-year contract at the Espirit Arena for an undisclosed annual salary.
Papadopoulos will battle for the starting position at Fortuna with the likes of Robert Almer and Fabian Giefer the early front-runners for the starting job. The Dusseldorf outfit also employ the services of former Larissa defender Christian Weber.
Fortuna finished third in the 2. Bundesliga last season before beating Hertha Berlin in a two-leg play-off in order to book a return to the German top flight for the first time since 1997.
