Antonis makes Eredivisie switch

Newly-promoted Eredivisie side VVV Venlo have announced the signing of Australia international midfielder Terry Antonis from Greek side PAOK.

Antonis spent the last two season's on loan at Veria and Western Sydney Wanderers after failing to command a regular starting berth at Thessaloniki-based side.

Once hailed as the heir to Tim Cahill in the Socceroos squad, the 23-year-old will be looking to get his career back on track with the Dutch outfit after signing a two-year deal.

VVV football manager Stan Valckx welcomed the technically gifted midfielder's arrival due to his ability of playing all across midfield.

"He is a versatile midfielder who has qualities we need in the league," he told the club's official website.

Antonis is the third off-season arrival at VVV, after German goalkeeper Lars Unnerstall and striker Tarik Tissoudali.
