European football transfer briefs on Monday:

Serbian named to Bulgarians' helm

Bulgarians Levski Sofia named Serbian Slavisa Jokanovic as their new head coach, the club said.

The 44-year-old Jokanovic has signed a one-year contract with an option to extend it, Levski chief executive Nasko Sirakov told journalists.

The change at the helm of one of Bulgaria's most popular teams came after a bitter Europa League failure last week that cost previous coach Nikolay Mitov his job.

The 26-time champions were knocked out of the first qualifying round by Kazakh minnows Irtysh Pavlodar 2-0 on aggregate.

Greeks plump for one-cap Austrian wonder

Austrian midfielder Andreas Lasnik has signed a one-year contract with Panionios for an undisclosed fee, the Greek Super League club announced.

The 29-year-old, who has earned one cap for his country back in 2005, joined from Dutch outfit NAC Breda.

Samba star Romeu seduces Panthrakikos

Greek Super League club Panthrakikos announced they have signed Brazilian midfielder Romeu for an undisclosed fee on a one-year contract.

The 28-year-old former Fluminense player joins from fellow Greeks Larissa.
