Veria sign Kafes, Atromitos fail in Koke bid
- Updated: September 1, 2012
On a quiet transfer deadline day for Greek clubs, Veria managed to sign veteran midfielder Pantelis Kafes on a free transfer, while Sergio Koke’s proposed move to Atromitos failed to materialize.
The capture of Kafes, who was last at AEK Athens and before that played for both PAOK and Olympiacos, is something of a coup for newly promoted Veria.
At 34 years of age the former Greece international brings a wealth of experience to Makis Chavos’ side, who have been busy during the transfer window, also bringing in Kafes’ former teammate Nikos Georgeas and PAOK defender Miroslaw Sznaucner on free transfers.
Dusan Bajevic’s Atromitos meanwhile failed in their attempt to sign former Aris talsiman Sergio Koke, who remains in Azerbaijan with FC Baku.
Baku reportedly set an asking price of €200,000 for the Spanish striker, which the Peristeri club was unable to meet.
They have thus been unable to compensate for the loss of their two star players from last season – Kostas Mitroglou and Andreas Tatos – who returned to Olympiacos at the end of their loan deals.
