Nikos Psychogios (Greek: Νίκος Ψυχογιός, born 25 February 1989) is a professional Greek football player, currently playing for Aris Thessaloniki in the Football League 2.[1]

Club career[edit]

He started his career at Iraklis, without making a single league appearance for the club. In 2009, he signed for Beta Ethniki side Olympiakos Volou on a two-year loan.[2] His team won the 2009–10 Beta Ethniki championship and won promotion to the 2010–11 Superleague, with him making 24 appearances and scoring 2 goals.[2] He signed for current club Aris Thessaloniki on 23 August 2012[3]

Controversy[edit]

There was some controversy surrounding the loan move of Nikos to Olympiakos Volou. Olympiakos initially announced that they acquired the player on a full transfer, with Nikos signing a two-year contract.[2] The situation was cleared up on 9 February 2011, when the Hellenic Football Federation confirmed that the player was on loan to the club, and he would have to move back to Iraklis after the season was over.[2]
