FC Salzburg midfielder Andreas Ivanschitz is to spend a second season on loan at Panathinaikos FC after making a bright start to his career in Athens.

Second season
The 23-year-old Austrian international has scored four goals in 24 league games for the Greek club since joining at the start of the season, and Panathinaikos - third in the league - were pleased to report they had secured Ivanschitz's services for another season. The former SK Rapid Wien trainee said recently: "I want to stay in Greece at least until the finals of [UEFA] EURO 2008™. I have adapted to the team and the league and I am constantly improving myself as a player. I have made a new start to my career."
