At the end of the European football transfer season, two Greek international players, striker Kostas Mitroglou and goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis have secured very profitable contracts in France and England, respectively.
Goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis secured a transfer to Premier League club Watford from Italian side Udinese, on a season-long loan deal.
The 32-year-old joined Udinese from Greece‘s Panathinaikos in 2013 and has made over 100 appearances for the Serie A club.
Karnezis, who has 42 caps for Greece, previously won the Greek league and domestic Cup title with Panathinaikos.
Karnezis was the Greek national team’s goalkeeper in last night’s World Cup qualifier against Estonia in Piraeus. Mitroglou missed the game due to a slight injury.
