LuaLua signs 6-month deal to return to Olympiakos

Congo striker Lomana LuaLua has returned to Olympiakos after signing a six-month contract with the Greek champions.
Olympiakos said in a statement that LuaLua signed Thursday in a deal that has an option to be extended for two years.
Olympiakos has numerous injuries and coach Zico had been seeking a striker to pair with 21-year-old Costas Mitroglou.
The club is currently second in the Greek league, two points behind Panathinaikos. Olympiakos has reached the round of 16 in the Champions League, where it faces Bordeaux on Feb. 23 and March 17.
The 29-year-old LuaLua, a former Newcastle and Portsmouth player, first joined Olympiakos in 2007 and left the following year for a 16-month spell at Qatari club Al-Arabi.
