The excellent performances by the player (he was the team’s leading scorer) has led to AEK Athens finally paying for the player’s economic rights. In compensation, UD Las Palmas have been paid 2 million euros in all: 200,000 euros, which were received for the loan deal, and now a further 1.8 million euros to round off the purchase price.
