Atlanta United make Alexander Tambakis franchise's first player

Alexander Tambakis has become the first player in Atlanta United history, the MLS expansion franchise announced on Monday.

The 23-year-old comes from Greek club Panathinaikos, and will spend the 2016 season with Atlanta's USL affiliate the Charleston Battery before joining the team for its maiden MLS campaign in 2017.

"Alex is a promising young player with solid tools and a big upside," Atlanta technical director Carlos Bocanegra said in a statement on Monday. 

"He's already had big game experience in Greece which is an advantage for a 23-year-old goalkeeper. We're looking forward to his continued development at the Battery."

Details of the deal were not disclosed, per MLS policy.

Tambakis had been with Panathinaikos since 2011, and has had loan spells with Greek side Niki Volos and Dutch club VVV-Venlo before joining United.
