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.
