Koumantarakis joins Preston
Koumantarakis has 10 caps for South Africa
Koumantarakis is a key player for South Africa
Preston have signed South Africa striker George Koumantarakis from Swiss club Basle on a short-term contract.

The 28-year has played against Celtic, Valencia and Liverpool for Basle in this season's Champions League.

Koumantarakis is Greek born and has dual nationality so he does not need a work permit.

He was a member of the South Africa World Cup squad and was the top scorer in the Swiss league last season.

The player has signed a short-term contract until the end of the season.

Bolton and Norwegian club Rosenborg had also been linked with the player.

Meanwhile, Preston have also been linked with Everton midfielder Kevin McLeod.

The Toffees rejected a bid from Rotherham for the 22-year-old earlier in the season.

The Liverpool-born winger has played Premiership football and is a regular for the club's reserves.
