Nottingham Forest striker Hilal Soudani is set to join Olympiakos.

The 31-year-old has been spotted at the airport in Greece ahead of his move, as per a report by HITC Sport.

Soudani, who is an Algerian international with 49 caps under his belt, only joined Forest last summer from Dinamo Zagreb and signed a three-year deal.

However, he has only made eight appearances for the Reds since his move, chipping in with two goals, but is not part of Martin O’Neill’s plans for next season.

He will link up with Greek giants Olympiakos, who are owned by the Forest owner, Evangelos Marinakis as well.

Soudani started his career in Algeria with ASO Chlef before he was signed by Portuguese side Vitória de Guimarães for €800,000 in August 2011. He became a key player for the Primeira Liga side and scored 18 goals in 45 games.

Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb signed him for €900,000 in May 2013. Soudani spent five years with them, bagging 86 goals in 197 appearances.

He played a key part in Zagreb winning the Croatian title four times, Croatian Cup twice and the Croatian Super Cup, as well as playing in the Europa League.

It hasn’t worked out for Soudani at the City Ground but a move to Olympiakos is an exciting one for him and he will be looking to get his hands on some more silverware in the next campaign.
