IRISH STRIKER ANTHONY Stokes’ brief spell in Greece looks set to come to an end.

The Ireland international was released by Hibernian back in January as a result of disciplinary problems, before joining Greek SuperLeague club Apollo Smyrni in February in a deal that was due to last until the end of the season.

The club are battling relegation and ex-Sunderland and Celtic striker Stokes had failed to score in four appearances, before news emerged earlier this month that he had gone AWOL.

“The player is in clear breach of his contract. He has failed to even contact us during the period he has not turned up for training,” read a club statement, per RTÉ.

“As a consequence of this, we are looking [to see] if we can legally terminate his contract.”
