For years now, Panionios have proven to be a hot market for Greece’s Big-4 as 15 players have made a move from the Kyanerythri to one of Greece's top clubs in the last three years. Since 2005, Panionios have given a player to one of Olympiacos, Panathinaikos, AEK, or PAOK every season with the exception of the 2006/07 season. Players have made this big jump via a transfer while others signed on as free agents.
