Panathinaikos have completed the signing of French international Sidney Govou on a free transfer.

Govou has signed a two-year deal with the Greek champions after leaving Lyon at the end of last season.

A number of Premier League clubs had been linked with Govou, with West Ham reported to have made an offer for the winger.

However, Panathinaikos have managed to lure the 31-year-old to Greece and he will boost their squad as they prepare for the UEFA Champions League next season.

Govou will link up with France team-mate Djibril Cisse at Panathinaikos and they could be joined by Les Bleus ace William Gallas, who is also available on a free transfer.
