Georgiou moves to AEL Limassol

Lilywhite Rose can exclusively reveal that Anthony Georgiou has completed his permanent transfer to AEL Limassol.

23-year-old Georgiou has been with Spurs since joining from Watford in 2013 and has spent time out on loan with Levante B, Ipswich Town and Bolton Wanderers, playing both as a left-back and as a left-winger.

It was against another Cypriot side that Georgiou made his Spurs debut in 2018. The substitute appearance against APOEL in the Champions League was to be his only appearance for the club, however.

An 8-cap Cypriot international, Georgiou joins one of the island’s most successful clubs, with AEL having won six first division titles, seven Cypriot Cups and four Super Cups in their history. With their last league title coming in 2011/12, AEL will be hope their new signing can help propel them back to domestic glory and into Europe.

In 2014/2015, AEL faced Tottenham in a Europa League play-off, with Spurs securing a 5-1 aggregate win.

Good luck for the future, Anthony.
