The signing of Aggelos Basinas, which has been spreading around in rumors all summer long has finally been officially released on AEK’s website. He recently declined Olympiakos’ offer of a two year contract and has instead signed with AEK for three years. His experience should add some stability to an AEK squad filled with young, taleneted, yet inexperienced players.
He is a defensive midfielder who is now the captain of the Greek National Team. His performance during EURO 2008 qualifiers was very promising. He was part of the Greek squad that won EURO 2004, and he played a key part in the team’s success at that tournament.
