Newcastle midfielder Mehdi Abeid reiterated his desire to rejoin Panathinaikos this summer.
The Greens have been chasing Abeid's signature for several weeks but the talks were put on hold.
However, Abeid is still keen on rejoining Panathinaikos, as he told Goal Newspaper: “I was in talks with Panathinaikos manager Yiannis Anastasiou but the transfer did not go through. I'm open to a return. I want to play regularly and Panathinaikos would be the best choice, so I would like to return.”
