Mehdi Abeid heads to Panathinaikos
Newcastle United midfielder Mehdi Abeid has joined Panathinaikos on a season-long loan deal.
Abeid, 20, joined Newcastle from Lens in 2011 but has struggled to break into Alan Pardew’s first-team plans.
He headed to Scottish side St Johnstone in January to continue his development and will now look to make an impression at Panathinaikos.
A statement on the Greek club's official website read: “Panathinaikos FC announces that it has entered into an agreement with Newcastle United for the one-year loan of Algerian international footballer Mehdi Abeid.”
