Everton signed Apostolos Vellios from Greek side Iraklis Thessaloniki in January 2011.

A striker, he was given his first-team debut in April of the same year, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa at Goodison Park. 

Five months later, Vellios scored his first goal for the Blues as they beat Wigan Athletic 3-1.

The following month, the Greek scored within 19 seconds of coming on against Chelsea in a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge, and a week later made his first Premier League start in a 3-1 victory at Fulham.

Further senior appearances and his goalscoring exploits for the reserves led to Vellios being named Young Player of the Year at the Club's End of Season Awards in May 2012.

Then, on 14 July 2013, he scored the first goal of the Roberto Martinez era, a header in a 2-1 pre-season defeat at Austria Vienna. 

Vellios left the Blues at the end of the following campaign and joined Belgian outfit Lierse.
