Vasil Shkurti (born Vassilis Skourtis-Shkurtaj on 27 February 1992) is an Albanian professional footballer who plays for Cypriot club Aris Limassol F.C. as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Chania, Greece, Shkurti played youth football for four clubs, including Jong Ajax, Olympiakos F.C. and S.S. Lazio. He arrived at the latter in January 2010 as compatriot Igli Tare acted as the team's director of football.[1]

In the 2010–11 season, Shkurti made his senior debuts, representing Panionios F.C. in his country of adoption but also being loaned by the Superleague side to Thrasyvoulos F.C. in January 2011. Roughly one year later he moved to Portugal, joining lowly Vilaverdense FC, and the following campaign he signed with C.D. Tondela in that nation's Segunda Liga, led by former S.L. Benfica and Portugal great Vítor Paneira.
