Porto's Jose Sa completes move to Greek giants, seeing him link up with compatriot Pedro Martins
Jose Sa has completed a season-long loan move to Greek side Olympiakos, now managed by ex-Guimaraes boss Pedro Martins.
The 25-year old former Portugal U21 international was Porto's number one for a significant period of time for Porto last season, and was the starting goalkeeper when Porto suffered a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool in the Champions League round of sixteen.
He was subsequently replaced with Iker Casillas, who maintained his place in the side until the end of the season, helping Porto to lift the Primeira Liga title.
A loan move is exactly what Jose Sa needed to ensure regular game time to continue his development, and linking up with manager Pedro Martins, who was the man that gave Sa his professional debut back in 2013 when both were at Maritimo, can also only be a good thing, now playing for a manager that clearly has a lot of faith in him.
Yaya Toure was another player to sign for Pedro Martins' side late in the window, while Jose Sa's compatriots Daniel Podence and Roderick Miranda are also at the club.
Sa's loan deal includes an option to make the signing permanent.
