Sofia striker Hristov loaned to Wisla Krakow

SOFIA - Levski Sofia striker Georgi Hristov has joined Polish champions Wilsa Krakow on a year-long loan, the Sofia-based Bulgarian champions said.

The 25-year-old Hristov was the Bulgarian league's top scorer in the 2007-08 season and is expected to make his debut on Saturday when Polish league leaders Wisla visit Belchatow.

Levski, meanwhile, signed Slovakian international Peter Petras, a free agent after leaving Slovan Bratislava last year, on a six-month contract.

The 30-year-old right back will replace Bulgaria international Zhivko Milanov, who joined Romanian club Vaslui last month.
