Fejsa leaves Partizan for Olympiacos

Midfielder Ljubomir Fejsa said he hoped to "live up to the club and the fans' expectations" after leaving Serbian champions FK Partizan for their Greek counterparts Olympiacos FC.

Midfielder Ljubomir Fejsa hopes to follow in the tradition of Serbian players impressing at Olympiacos FC after joining the Greek champions in a €3m switch from FK Partizan.

Capped twice by Serbia, the 22-year-old penned a four-year contract on Friday. Fejsa knows the likes of Predrag Djordjević and Darko Kovačević have impressed for the red and whites, and said he "wishes he can be just as successful". He added: "I'm honoured to sign for Olympiacos and I hope I can live up to the club and the fans' expectations." The former FK Hajduk Kula midfielder joined Partizan in 2008. Olympiacos start their 2011/12 UEFA Champions League campaign in the group stage.
