Chicago Fire's Designated Player Nery Castillo is set to join Greek Super League Aris Thessaloniki FC.

The 26-year old Mexico international will join Aris on a sixth-month loan deal according to an Associated Press report after the Greek club came to an agreement with Castillo's Shakhtar Donetsk.

Castillo joined the Fire in July last year but only managed eight appearances due to both injuries and poor form.

Previously, Castillo enjoyed plenty of success in Greece with Olympiakos, scoring 30 goals in 105 league matches.
