Plessis and El Zhar head to Greece
Plessis, 22, moves to the Trifylli after failing to break into Roy
Hodgson’s first-team plans. The Frenchman arrived at Anfield from
Lyon in the summer of 2007 but failed to force his way into the
Reds midfield, featuring just eight times and scoring one goal.
Meanwhile, winger El Zhar has joined PAOK Thessaloniki on a
season-long loan. The Morocco international was only a bit-part
player under Rafa Benitez, arriving on Merseyside from St Etienne
in 2006 but playing only 32 times. El Zhar, 24, has not featured at
all for Hodgson since he took over. Reserve team midfielder Vincent
Weijl has completed a transfer to SD Eibar.
