Juventus defender Olof Mellberg is currently in Athens finalising his transfer to Olympiakos, according to reports.
The former Aston Villa stopper is expected to be unveiled as a new Olympiakos player in the next 48 hours.
According to Greek paper Sportday, Mellberg will sign a three-year contract at the Karaiskakis Stadium and Juve will receive €2.5million (£2.2m).
The Sweden international left Villa last summer for Juventus, but, as Fabio Cannavaro has now returned to the Turin club, Mellberg is thought to be keen to guarantee himself first-team football.
