Barkas Signs for AEK

Vasilis Barkas, the promising young Greek keeper who played for Atromitos last season, has signed for AEK. The deal will see him at AEK for at least three years.

A pretty good move by the team if you ask me. I’m always happy to see us give young Greek players a chance but even more so when its with a player who has already proved himself in the Superleague. From what I’ve been reading, it sounds like Barkas and Anestis will be our main keepers next season. Too early to tell at this point for sure but I imagine Barkas is the intended starting keeper.

Nothing is official, but we are also supposedly very close to singing Ukrainian centreback Dmytro Chygrynskiy. He has played much of his career for Shakthar but also featured in some games for Barcelona. He isn’t extremely old (29 years of age) and has some good experience so hopefully he’ll be a step up from Arzo. He has already arrived in Athens and done some medical tests, so it seems like its just a matter of finalizing some details and singing the papers.

So far we’re not half way through June but we’ve signed a good coach and a couple solid players. I’m really pleased to see the team moving along well, hopefully by time training camp starts up in a few weeks we’ll have a good idea of what kind of team we can expect next season.

    Arzo was so awful, he can’t possibly be worse. If he can stay healthy, who knows?
