Levi Garcia joins AEK Athens for €2.2m.

T&T midfielder/winger Levi Garcia has joined AEK Athens in Greece after a 15-month stint with Beitar Jerusalem in Israel.

The 22-year-old Garcia moved to the 96-year-old Greek club on a five-year deal after a transfer fee of €2.2 million and €400,000 in bonus was accepted.

Garcia, who has 27 international caps for T&T, was a former national Under-17 and Under-20 representative.

He made his local club debut with TTEC and was a member of Central FC before making the move to the Netherlands in February 2015 to play for AZ Alkmaar.

Garcia struggled to make an impact at AZ Alkmaar, owing to injuries and inconsistent form, and had loan spells at Jong AZ and SBV Excelsior. He went to Israel to join Ironi Kiryat Shmona in May 2018 and, a year later, signed for Beitar Jerusalem.

Now Garcia will be starting a new chapter in his professional career, in Greece.
