Panathinaikos on brink of Luis Garcia signing

Panathinaikos are set to sign released Racing Santander striker Luis Garcia.

Garcia made just 14 appearances since leaving Atletico Madrid last summer, but the former Spain international will now link up with ex-Liverpool team-mate Djibril Cisse, who he won the UEFA Champions League alongside in 2005.

"It's an exceptional honour for me that I will continue my career with Panathinaikos," Garcia told Greek newspaper Sport Day.

"It is a big opportunity for me to win new titles in my career with the biggest club in Greece."
