Delvin Ndinga has joined Greek champions Olympiakos on a one-year loan deal from Ligue 1 side Monaco.
The Congo midfielder has been deemed surplus to requirements by head coach Claudio Ranieri after being pushed down the pecking order.
The 25-year-old, who has played just eight minutes for the big-spending French side this season, has an option to eventually make it a permanent move.
With the club splashing out £18million on France international Geoffrey Kondogbia from Sevilla, Ndinga has decided to move on.
Ndinga, who has won 20 caps for Congo, is the second midfielder to join Olympiakos from a Ligue 1 team in two days after the Champions League combatants signed Malian Sambou Yatabare from Bastia for a fee of £1.8million.
