Papadopoulos delighted with Lecce agreement

Dimitrios Papadopoulos has agreed a deal with Lecce.

The Greece international striker will join Lecce in January after coming off contract from Panathinaikos.

"There was contact with other clubs, but faced with the possibility of coming to Lecce and challenging myself in Italian football, it was not difficult to make this decision," the former Burnley striker told the official Lecce website.

"I had a few problems with my old club, I was seeking a family and have found it. I know Serie A fairly well even if I have not spoken to Greek players who are in this League yet.

"I know it's a tough division and I'll have to work hard to adapt to what the Coach asks of me.

"At Panathinaikos I had some Italian experiences, as I faced Lazio in a friendly and when Alberto Malesani was in charge we took on Udinese in the Champions League."
