Giannis Anestis (Greek: Γιάννης Ανέστης; born 9 March 1991[1]) is a professional Greek football player, currently playing for Superleague (Greece) side AEK Athens.


He started playing football at Panionios's youth team, and was promoted to the first team in 2010. His first appearance was on 21 April 2013 against Olympiacos in Karaiskakis Stadium. Panionios lost the match 2-1. On 23 January 2014, Anestis signed a four-year contract with AEK for an undisclosed fee, starting at the end of 2013-14 season.[2] He played as the basic goalie in the successful 2014-15 campaign when AEK Athens won the championship and promoted in the Super League. At the summer of 2015, AEK has signed with Venezuelan international goalie Alain Baroja who will start as a first choice for Traianos Dellas squad.

On December 21, 2015 he made his debut with AEK Athens in the Super League as a replacement of injured Alain Baroja who suffered a finger injury on December's training and will remain out of action for at least one month. Anestis, had played only in Greek Cup so far this season.[3] In this game he was the negative protagonist as his club due to his mistake suffered a 2-1 home loss against Levadiakos.[4] On 9 January 2016, in his third Super League game helped his club to escape with a 2-1 home win against Skoda Xanthi, as he saved Dani Nieto's penalty kick, helping his club to retain the second place in the league.[5]
