Panathinaikos bring in Berg

By Football News



Panathinaikos have confirmed the signing of Hamburg striker Marcus Berg on a four-year deal.

The Sweden international, 26, moves to Greece for an undisclosed fee after only managing one Bundesliga goal in the last two seasons at the Imtech Arena.

Hamburg initially signed Berg from Groningen for almost €10 million in 2009, but his best return came in his debut season as he hit four goals in 30 league games.

He also spent the 2010-11 season back in the Eredivisie with PSV Eindhoven, where he notched eight times in 25 league outings.

A 23-time Sweden international, Berg was named player of the tournament after top scoring at the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championships.

Berg follows defensive midfielder David Mendes da Silva to Panathinaikos, who signed from Red Bull Salzburg on Thursday.
