HENRIQUE JOINS KAYSERISPOR
Last week, it had also been confirmed that Pedro Henrique left PAOK for Kayserispor of the Turkish Super Lig.
Kayserispor paid PAOK 650 thousand euros to sign Henrique on a permanent basis.
Henrique spent two years on PAOK’s books after joining in January 2017. The 29-year-old Brazilian forward, scorer of the winning goal in the 2017 Greek Cup final against AEK, spent spells on loan at Qarabag and FC Astana from PAOK.
