Tunisian international midfielder Mehdi Nafti on Tuesday signed a two-year deal to play for Aris Salonica, the Greek first division club announced.

No financial details were revealed by Aris. Nafti, 30, who was born in Toulouse, France and played for the local team in his first professional season (1997-2000), also played for Racing Santander in Spain in 2000-2005 and Birmingham City from 2005-2009.

"It is a big honour for me to be in Salonica and I am very pleased with the greeting by the supporters. It was something I did not expect. After a very bad year for me I have come here hungry to play football," Nafti said.
