Koutsianikoulis snubs AEK, joins OFI
- Updated: August 20, 2012
Vasilis Koutsianikoulis has snubbed AEK Athens in favour of a move to OFI Crete, with his move officially announced today.
The Cretans have confirmed that the 24 year-old has joined OFI on a free transfer after leaving local rivals Ergotelis, with whom he had just finished a second spell.
Reports had linked Koutsianikoulis with both AEK and OFI in the past weeks and it seemed the Athenian club had convinced the Greek youth international to join, despite their well documented financial troubles.
However, the winger has opted for OFI, who recently secured a license from the tax office to take part in the Greek Super League this season.
That is more than can be said for AEK, who have not had their place in Greece’s top flight confirmed.
They are now reported to be desperate to hang on to midfielder Dimitris Sialmas, who seemed set for a move to Azerbaijani club Inter Baku.
Sialmas is being offered around 350,000 per year by Baku and could legally challenge AEK’s authority to block the deal, as the problems continue to mount for the Athenian side ahead of their opening league match against Asteras Tripoli.
