Liverpool's Argentinian midfielder Sebastian Leto has joined Greek side Olympiacos on a two-year loan deal, following problems with his Italian passport. The 21-year-old South American has made a handful of appearances for the Reds, but has been forced to leave Anfield for the time being to continue his career. Leto told his new club's official website: "Olympiacos is a challenge for me. I know I will be here for two years. "I've had two weeks of pre-season training with Liverpool and I believe I will be ready to do whatever I have to. "Olympiacos are a great team who challenge for every honour in Greece and in the Champions League." Leto had admitted a couple of weeks ago: "I spoke with Rafa Benitez and he told me that he wants me, but I can't stay without the correct passport. "He advised me to go somewhere else to play for one season and to return next summer. He is right."
