A Cypriot youth international defender who was previously part of the club’s Elite Academy in Greece, Kostas joined Arsenal on scholarship terms after a successful trial. Capable of making well-timed challenges and distributing the ball effectively to others, Kostas is predominantly a centre-back but he can also be used as a left-back if required. He is an intelligent reader of the game who is comfortable in possession. The youngster, who was particularly impressive during the AlKass International Cup in Qatar, is expected to start off the campaign in Arsenal’s U18 squad but may well progress into the U21 set-up at the campaign develops.
