Vangelis Platellas (Greek: Βαγγέλης Πλατέλλας, born 1 December 1988) is a Greek footballer who plays for AEK Athens in the Greek Superleague, as a winger.

Club career[edit]

Vangelis Platellas began playing professional football for Football League side Kallithea, and then transferred on 2 January 2012 to Super league side Skoda Xanthi.[1] In the summer of 2013, Platellas signed with Greek AEK Athens. In the 2013-14 season, Platellas made 25 appearances scoring 15 goals. On 8 December 2016, AEK's winger was not included in match squad ahead of Levadiakos home clash and seems to be out of technical staff plans. It seems that the 28-year-old international, who joined the Greek Cup winners back in 2013 and his current contract expires at the end of 2016-17 season, will leave the club in January window in order to continue his career elsewhere.
