Roy Carroll has expressed his happiness at joining Greek giants Olympiakos from OFI Crete on an 18-month contract.

The former Manchester United man is honoured to be joining, stating he wanted to play again at the highest level of club football.

Olympiakos tackle Rubin Kazan in the Europa League's round of 32 and the ex-Northern Ireland international is pleased to be playing European football.

"I'm very happy to have joined such a club," he told the club's official website.

"It's a real honour to be part of Olympiakos, Greece's greatest team. I will do my best in order to contribute and help our squad accomplish its goals.

"I'm really looking forward to the Europa League games and my own comeback to European competition.

"I'm hoping that next year we will be playing in the Champions League, because everybody wants to play at the top level. In order to be able to do so, however, we must first win the championship."
