The 19-year-old, who has been capped twice by his country, has begun talks at the Stadium of Light over personal terms.

Mavrias has made more than 60 appearances for Panathinaikos, scoring six goals, and has Champions League experience.

Three years ago he made his debut in Europe's elite club tournament against Rubin Kazan at the age of 16 - becoming the second-youngest debutant in that competition behind Celestine Babayaro.

Paolo Di Canio has already received considerable backing from owner Ellis Short this summer, with 10 fresh faces drafted into the Stadium of Light.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
