Greek youth international football player Giannis Simosis is hoping to become part of the Western Sydney Wanderers’ A-League squad, according to recent reports.
Simosis arrived in Adelaide after local club Adelaide Olympic sought his services when the striker announced he wanted a move out of Greek football because of the country’s ominous economic situation.
The 21-year-old player’s mother was born in Australia and that enables Simosis to overcome every type of visa problem.
Simosis played two games for Adelaide Olympic and scored once before he attracted interest from Adelaide United.
But Simosis said Reds officials told him they had “no room” before he trained with Wanderers for the first time today.
“The guys from Adelaide Olympic got me out here and they helped me a lot,” said the former Panionios and Panthrakikos Greek Super League striker. “But Adelaide United told me they had a full squad. They said the club was full of strikers, but yes, I still want to play here. My mum was born in Melbourne, and she was here (Australia) until she was 15-years-old. But I want to experience the A-League.”
Simosis praised Wanderers facilities before revealing he is expected to stay with the club until the end of the week hoping to be offered the chance to sign a contract.
