Liverpool winger Milan Jovanovic is hoping to begin talks with Greek giants Olympiakos after revealing that he has been told by the Reds he is free to find a new club.

Jovanovic, 30, failed to assert himself on the first-team picture in his debut season at Anfield, making just ten appearances after arriving at the club from Standard Liege last summer.

The Serbia international has now been told that he does not feature in Kenny Dalglish's plans and is free to bring an end to his ill-fated spell at the club.

"I got the paper from Liverpool that I am free to search for a new club," Jovanovic said. "Up to now, I still haven't received an official offer from Olympiakos, but I am looking forward to hearing their plans."

Jovanovic was signed by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez before he left the club and featured fleetingly under Roy Hodgson before making just one start under Dalglish.
