On 16 June 2007 Kyriakidis completed his move from AEK to AEL and earned 24 caps in 2007-2008 season. With AEK Athens he gained experience in Champions League matches. After 3 successful years with the Thessalian club, he decided to continue his career elsewhere, having plans to move away from Greece. His next team however, was Greek side Ergotelis. On 2 January 2011 he signed a new contract for two years and a half with the club.
In the summer of 2012, he dissolve his contract with Ergotelis and sign for free with the Bulgarian Lokomotiv Plovdiv. During Lokomotiv pre-season preparation, the owner of the club - Konstantin Dinev decided to resign and left the team in bad financial situation.
