Olympiacos FC have completed a double raid on Ligue 1, securing the signatures of Sambou Yatabaré from SC Bastia and Delvin Ndinga from AS Monaco FC.
Yatabaré joins from the Corsican side for a reported fee of €2.2m and has signed a four-year contract with the Greek champions. The 24-year old Mali midfielder started his career at SM Caen, before season-long spells at Monaco and Bastia.
Yatabaré told Olympiacos' official website: "Coming to such a big club like Olympiacos is a big step forward in my career. Playing in the Champions League motivates every player. I am very happy to be here and I intend to give my best in the red-and-white shirt."
Ndinga arrives on a one-year loan from Monaco, meanwhile. The Congo midfielder only joined the principality side last summer from AJ Auxerre but is surplus to requirements after the club's high-profile recruitment drive.
Meanwhile, Bastia have moved quickly to replace Yatabaré, bringing in Serbian international Miloš Krasić on a season-long loan from Fenerbahçe SK. The 28-year-old winger has an impressive pedigree, having won the 2005 UEFA Cup with PFC CSKA Moskva and the 2012 Serie A title with Juventus. He has 46 caps for his country.
