Orestis Karnezis is considering a move back to Greece, according to reports in his homeland.

The keeper joined Watford on loan last summer and has impressed since making the most of a back injury to long-serving Brazilian Heurelho Gomes in January.

He has previously stated a desire to make his move permanent this summer, but now looks to have had a change of heart with Greek side Olympiacos said to be circling.

Karnezis, who previously played for Panathinaikos, is valued at around £1.5 million and is believed to be interested in a potential move.

The 30-year-old made a shaky start to life in the Watford goal after coming from the bench and almost immediately making an error to gift Everton a goal in a 3-2 loss.

He has since improved and earned the trust as Javi Gracia’s preferred option between the sticks at Vicarage Road.

However, an error against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday has once again led to questions being asked about his long-term suitability.

The summer could see talented 19-year-old Pontus Dahlberg arrive at Watford after being shipped out on loan to IFK Gothenburg upon completing his January transfer.
