Rieira arrived in Greece on Thursday to tie up his move from Anfield and he was greeted by thousands of Olympiacos fans at the airport. Liverpool have agreed to sell Riera as Roy Hodgson looks to reshape the squad at Anfield ahead of the new season. Riera, who joined Liverpool from Espanyol in 2008, has been on the fringes at Anfield after falling out with former boss Rafa Benitez last season. The 28-year-old is expected to sign a three-year deal with the option for a further 12 months at Olympiakos once he passes a medical.
