Crystal Palace have signed Serbian international Luka Milivojevic from Olympiakos.

The 25-year-old holding midfielder joins for 13million and has penned a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Eagles.

Milivojevic started his career with Serbian outfit Radnicki Kragujevac, then went on to Rad and Red Star Belgrade and then Belgian club Anderlecht in 2013.

He has impressed for Olympiakos since coming to Greece in 2015, scoring five goals in 16 League appearances this season.

Eagles manager Sam Allardyce said: "He's a defensive midfield player with great ability with both feet and ability to pass the ball. Sitting in midfield - this lad loves that position, it's his main position.

"I'm looking forward to working with him. With Patrick van Aanholt and Jeffrey Schlupp as well, we've added quality to the squad which can hopefully bring us better results.

"I had a player asking me today if I'd put him up for sale - that's what you get with this godforsaken window, players being told things which aren't true, that shows you just how bad this window is, having a game on the last day."

Meanwhile, midfielder Jordon Mutch has joined Championship side Reading on loan for the rest of the season.
