Club career[edit]

Leicester City[edit]

Panayiotou was born in Leicester, to a Cypriot father, Andy, who is involved in youth football, and a mother with roots in Saint Kitts and Nevis.[2]

He started his career at the youth academy of local club Leicester City, alongside subsequent first-team teammates Andy King, Jeff Schlupp, Liam Moore, Tom Parkes and Cian Bolger. His performances for the under-18 side earned him the Fans' Academy Player of the Year award for the 2011–12 season. He was part of the youth squad which won the HKFC International Soccer Sevens cup in May 2013, where he scored five goals, including one in the 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the final; he was subsequently named Player of the Tournament.[3]

He made his senior debut for the "Foxes" against Leeds United on the final day of the 2011–12 season at Elland Road; he replaced Lloyd Dyer in the 73rd minute and scored the winning goal in extra time.[4] He signed his first professional contract in September 2012,[5] and in July 2014 he extended it by a further two years.[6]

On 20 October 2014, Panayioutou joined League One side Port Vale on a one-month loan.[7] However he did not make a first team appearance for the "Valiants" during his time at Vale Park.[8]

International career[edit]

On 8 October 2014, Panayiotou scored on his debut for Saint Kitts and Nevis in their Caribbean Cup qualifying defeat to Barbados at Stade Sylvio Cator in Haiti.[9]
