- Join Date:22/08/2013
Charis joined Sunderland on a four-year deal from Panathinaikos in August 2013.
The flying Greek winger was a firm favourite with the Panathinaikos fans and enjoys playing a direct style down the left flank.
After coming through the Athens side’s Academy, Charis made his club debut in the Champions League at the age of just 16, becoming the second-youngster player ever to feature in the competition.
Altogether he made 59 domestic and 11 European appearances, scoring six goals.
Charis is a full Greek international and had previously been capped by his country at U17, U19 and U21 level.
Mavrias made his Sunderland debut as a second half substitute in a 4-2 Capital One Cup win over MK Dons.
He scored his first goal for the club on 25th January 2014, netting the winner in a 1-0 FA Cup fourth round win over Kidderminster Harriers.
Charis returned to his former club on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day in January 2015.
