Regardless of what people think Giannoulis is worth or what they'd be satisfied with a sale amount, I'd prefer we don't sell him at all.  I just don't think he's easily replaceable.  Also, the level o

Our under 17's goalkeeper Nikos Botis looks like he's on his way to Inter Milan youth teams. We will retain 20% of his resale value. Good on the kid for getting a move to a big club at such a young ag

The team has announced that Mauricio's contract will not be renewed. Good luck to him as well!

 

Looks like he's training with Vieirinha, who is still a question mark.

Official announcement on Mauricio:

Quote

 

Η ΠΑΕ ΠΑΟΚ ανακοινώνει ότι το συμβόλαιο του Χοσέ Μαουρίσιο δεν θα ανανεωθεί. Ο Μαουρίσιο υπήρξε κομβικός ποδοσφαιριστής στην πιο επιτυχημένη διετία της σύγχρονης ιστορίας του Συλλόγου, κατακτώντας ένα πρωτάθλημα και δύο Κύπελλα Ελλάδας.

Ευχαριστούμε τον Μάου όχι μόνο για τα 92 ματς, τα 9 γκολ, τις 4 ασίστ, τα 6.942 λεπτά υψηλής ποδοσφαιρικής ποιότητας, αλλά και για τον επαγγελματισμό και την νοοτροπία που έφερε στα αποδυτήρια.

Του ευχόμαστε καλή συνέχεια στην καριέρα του και κάθε ευτυχία στην οικογενειακή του ζωή!

 

Liked him as a player, but given his age it's better to get some young blood into the team. This also frees one spot in the foreign based players list.

Nika Ninua, a 21-year midfielder from Dinamo Tbilisi will sign a three year contract tomorrow when he arrives in Thessaloniki.

As good as done IMO

 

His previous tweets also imply he was in Turkey, speaking with Besiktas (eagle emoji, black and white, etc etc). Maybe he just got confused and accidentally signed with us? haha

Ninua has deleted all of his tweets since July 1st, probably because his agent slapped him.

Here's another tweet to replace that:

Listening to radio from Thessaloniki, it seems a lot of people rate Insua and think we should've gone hard for him. Especially if we end up selling Giannoulis. Can't say I saw much of him except when we played them,  he seemed okay nothing hugely impressive but again that's based off of a few games.

Four weeks ago the Thessaloniki sports media (ie. sleazy scumbags that would sell their own mother) bought Misic from Sporting supposedly for 1 mil now and 1 mil later if he becomes healthy again. PAE PAOK never made an official announcement.

This time around it's again news from the same media that supposedly claims we are extending the loan for another year. Again no official announcement as of yet.

It's amazing how official something sounds when it's stated so matter-of-factly haha

Unrelated, perhaps the Italians are more trustworthy!

My google translate may be off here but it seems they're saying 6-7mm would make him theirs (which I'd agree with - we are NOT getting the buy-out clause triggered). It implies that Fiorentina is also still interested (who knows if that's the case). If Napoli comes knocking, it's a no-brainer on both sides IMO.

Sadly we don't have the negotiating leverage that Olympiakos had with Tsimikas. I would rate Giannoulis and Tsimikas about same but we are going to be forced to sell him at  half the price that Olympiakos allegedly sold Tsimikas.

Half would still be around this range, which I would gladly take at this point. I agree that Tsimikas is not better, however

The biggest difference is Tsimikas was able to perform and show what he can do on the European stage. To the kid's credit he played very well and earned that transfer. We as a team over the last 2 seasons have failed in Europe and haven't been able to showcase our players in the Champions League or even the Europa League. 

If an offer comes around 6mil I agree we will take it, seems like a fair transfer everything considered although I'm not so optimistic we will get that type of money.

Agreed. Also add to the fact that Tsimikas is going to the EPL and we are looking to sell to Italy.

One place I feel we go wrong in player development & progression for me is for example with this signing Nika Ninua ( not sure how to spell his name) you do not come from the Georgian League & make the paok squad, i agree his a promising signing but he must be loaned out immediately to a lower table Greek team like Volos to see if he can settle in the Greek league first, earn his spot in the squad!  

You cannot just sign players from anywhere, throw them in every off season and hope for the best, thats what poorly run clubs that win no tittles do like Panathianikos has been doing the last 5 seasons!

I just watched his highlight tape and it looks like he’s a free kick specialist. Also, I hear what you are saying, loan him out right away, but what if at practice and preseason he shows to be a player who can help us this year. You have to keep him. If during the first month you see he can’t help then yes loan him out, but to do it right away would be the wrong move

It's official. Ninua signed with PAOK for 4 years.

If we are going to loan him out it will be in December or next season after seeing what he can do.

It was reported today that PAOK got an offer from Spain for Paschalakis. Not sure if I would sell him prior to the Besiktas game.
