Greek club Olympiakos have signed former Northern Ireland goalkeeper Roy Carroll on an 18-month contract.

Carroll, who has 19 international caps, has moved to the Athens-based club from another Greek outfit OFI Crete.

The 34-year-old Carroll counts Manchester United, Rangers, Wigan, West Ham and Hull City among his former clubs in Britain.

"It's a real honour to be part of Olympiakos, Greece's greatest team," Carroll told the club's website.

"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."

In recent years he has played for Danish club Odense before moving to Greece to play for OFI Crete.

Carroll made his last Northern Ireland appearance in 2006 and later asked not to be considered for international duty.

However, he is now keen to resume his international career.
