Club career[edit]

Early life and career[edit]

After growing up in his native Albania, his family moved to Greece when he was seven. He started playing football in the youth team of Ilisiakos. In the 2006–07 season he was on loan to Fostiras (National D Division); scouts from Panathinaikos FC were impressed by him and he moved to Panathinaikos FC, signing for four years in July 2007.
He is a midfielder and was selected for the Greece National Under 19 Football Team, with which he played a vital role in the EURO U19 Championships, where Greece finished second to Spain.

Panathinaikos[edit]

He endeared himself to the Panathinaikos fans with his impressive dribbling skills, stamina and determination to win the ball. Although being signed primarily as a reserve player, Dimoutsos broke into the first team due to his performance. He is a versatile player, who can operate at defensive midfield, right midfield and central midfield.

In the summer transfer period of 2008, Dimoutsos signed with Crete club OFI Crete on loan.[1]

In January 2010, Dimoutsos signed with Panetolikos F.C. on loan.[2] In the summer of 2010, he returned to Panathinaikos F.C. and, after participating in the team's pre-season training, he gained a spot at the team's roster. While managing to participate against F.C. Barcelona in November 2010 in the group stage of the Champions League, he did not gain any more appearances with the main team and was loaned to FK Mladá Boleslav for the rest of the 2011 season.[3]

Atromitos[edit]

In the summer transfer period of 2011, Dimoutsos wasn't in Jesualdo Fereira plans for the new season and he transferred in Atromitos signing 2 years contract.[4] He made his debut on 30 September with the team in an away 1-0 victory against Aris. A year later during the 2012-13 season, he scored with the team in a tremendous 3-2 away victory against Olympiakos in Karaiskakis stadium. On 15 July 2015, after four years with the club and 151 appearances in all competitions, Atromitos announces the end of the cooperation with the player. Therefore, along with Luigi Cennamo, has informed that are not included in the planning of the club for the next season.[5][6]

Asteras Tripolis[edit]

Reports from Tripoli suggest that the midfielder, who ended his contract with Atromitos, will probably sign with Asteras Tripoli for the next season.[7] Eventually on 19 June 2015, Dimoutsos signed a three years' contract with Asteras Tripoli for an undisclosed fee, scoring his first goal for the club against Panionios,on September 23, 2015.[8]
