An official announcement has as of yet been lacking, however, with Dortmund supposedly keen to wait until July to make things official, according to a recent claim by German source Kicker, as translated by the Metro.

The latest from Sport Sto Noto is that Sokratis is now on his way to London after spending time in his home town of Kalamata.
