Vyntra linked with Omonia move

Cypriot Europa League hopefuls Omonia are closing in on veteran Greek defender Loukas Vyntra, according to media reports.

The 35-year-old former Greece international, who is currently contract at Hapoel Tel Aviv, is reportedly keen to join the Nicosia club following talks with the club’s technical director Nikos Dabizas.

Ex-Panathinaikos and Levante centre-back Vyntra has been deemed surplus to requirements by Hapoel boss Eli Guttman.

Omonia – who lead Armenian side Banants 1-0 heading into their second leg, first round Europa League qualifier on Thursday – recently parted ways with defenders Karim Hafez, Romaric and Ivan Runje while only Athansios Panteliades was brought in.

Vyntra spent the majority of his career in Greece with Panathinaikos winning the double with the Athens club in 2004 and 2010.

New Omonia boss John Carver has so far signed on English striker Matt Derbyshire – who scored the winner in Armenia last week – as well as Brazilian midfielder Cleyton, Israeli winger Amir Agayov, Panathinaikos keeper Constantinos Kotsaris and Ivory Coast midfielder Blati Toure.
