• Born in the central Greek town of Trikala, he was affiliated to Piraeus giants Olympiacos FC as a youth but began his senior career back home at lower-league club Trikala FC.

• Caught the eye for Greece's Under-17 team and was signed by Super league outfit Asteras Tripolis FC in 2010.

• Used predominantly as a substitute, the teenager clocked up 24 league appearances, scoring his first Super League goal on 19 September 2010 in a 2-2 draw at AEK Athens FC; unable, however, to save the side from relegation.

• Played for Greece at the 2011 UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Romania, scoring the only goal of the game against the hosts and impressing sufficiently to earn a four-year contract with 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

• Racked up 28 league appearances for Kaiserslautern but endured a second successive relegation; despite that he won a place in Greece's UEFA EURO 2012 squad having made his senior international debut four months before the finals in a home friendly against Belgium.

• Scored twice in 24 appearances as he helped Kaiserslautern to a third-place finish in the German second tier only to miss out on promotion due to defeat in he promotion/ relegation pla-off with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
