Luka Milivojevic: Joins Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have announced the signing of Serbian midfielder Luka Milivojevic from Olympiacos for an undisclosed fee.

He has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the club, who have also landed Mamadou Sakho on loan from Liverpool.

“I’m very excited to come to Crystal Palace and very excited to play in the Premier League, which is one of the best leagues in the world,” said the Serbia international.

“I will try to do my best, to give my best for the team and to adapt to the league and my new team as fast as possible.

“I’m a defensive midfielder, I’m the one who tries to control the game and bring balance to the team,” he said. “I will try to do my best and bring my qualities as soon as possible.

“This year I’ve scored six goals in 17 games – which is a little bit strange for me! I’ve been a success this year [at Olympiacos]. In the league I’ve played nearly every game, I’ve only missed one and that was [due to suspension] because of the cards.”
