It seems that the 23-year-old international had recently a meeting with owner of AEK Dimitris Melissanidis at his cruising boat and signed a three-season contract. When the administration of Panionios learned that, decided to exclude him from Monday's home game against PAOK and there is a strong chance that he will not enter the field again until January of 2017.
"We had reached an agreement with Olympiakos to sell him for 700.000 euros and keep him in the squad one more year on loan, so he would had the chance to play at Europa League with our team. He went and signed a contract with AEK without informing us and all this time he was acting like a real fan of this club.
AEK's offer was very low, almost insulting, but it's OK. The footballer will stay here until January without playing and when he joins them, he will be overweight", said Head of Panionios Football Department, Nikos Zamanis, according to Sportday newspaper.
