Hertha BSC sign Andreas Bouchalakis

Hertha BSC have completed the signing of midfielder Andreas Bouchalakis from Olympiacos on a two-year deal until 2025. “Andreas made it clearly early in our talks that coming to Hertha is something that excites him. Not only has he made over 300 competitive appearances in Greece, England and Turkey, but he also experience in European competitions and for the national team that he can pass on to our young players both on and off the pitch,” said sporting director Benjamin Weber. The 30-year-old Greek, who will wear the number 5 shirt, said: “Moving to Germany was a big dream of mine. I’m looking forward to showcasing myself at Hertha BSC and want to use my experience to help the team achieve their goals.”
