The only signing that the Greek side Panathinaikos made during the January transfer window was Charis Mavrias who was acquired on a loan deal which lasts until the end of the current season.
CharisMavrias is a 20 year old winger who has been hailed to be one of the next generations of players hailing from Greece. At the young age of 13, Mavrias had already signed his professional contract with Panathinaikos and was promoted to the first team squad.
The young winger was a sporadic player for Panathinaikos during his time performing between the years 2010-2012 before he went on to sign with the Premier League club Sunderland which had signed him for a fee of €2.6 million.
Things began to fall apart for Mavrias ever since he joined the English club as he began to spend more time on the sidelines of Sunderland than on the actual pitch even though the club had offloaded more than €2 million in order to secure his services. Mavrias did have some slim minutes and opportunities to demonstrate his talent on the pitch but he couldn’t manage to replicate what he had done during his time in Panathinaikos.
