Nettavisen learns this late Thursday evening.
Solbakken has struggled to play since he was brought to the Italian capital from Bodo/Glimt last January. In all, there have been 15 Serie A matches. This season, he’s only been given 22 minutes on the pitch after Roma’s first two league matches.
And after all the signs of the sun, he has now been loaned out to Olympiacos.
Solbakken is scheduled to fly to Athens on Friday morning, Netavissen reported. He has to complete the medical exam and finalize the final details before the deal is ready. If nothing unexpected happens, he will become an Olympiacos player in a short period of time.
Britain’s Daily Mail reported on Thursday afternoon that Leeds United wanted the winger, but as Netavisen understands, that was not at all appropriate.
This could be the great aftermarket replacement
Italian Sassuolo also wanted to sign Solbakken, as other media reported earlier.
On Wednesday, the 24-year-old was named in Ståle Solbakken’s national squad for matches against Jordan and Georgia.
Olympiacos finished third in the Greek League last season. The team is currently at the top of the league after two matches played this season.
