Farke said of Tzolis, holder of eight senior Greece caps: ‘We are all delighted with this signing. There was a lot of interest in Christos from some of the biggest teams in Europe.
‘In his age group, Christos is probably one of the most exciting offensive players across European football. He’s a young winger with lots of pace and potential.
‘He’s in a good physical condition and has been there delivering with many goals and assists for a big club in Greece in PAOK.

‘Of course, we will give him the time to improve and adapt to English football, but we have a player with a lot of potential and a great personality.’
