CareerEdit

On 9 April 2016, Pavlidis signed a professional contract until the summer of 2019. Pavlidis is in the Bochum team for one and half years and has redeemed his stunning appearances in the Bundesliga U19 competitive league (45 matches - 20 goals - 13 assist) and his excellent presence with the first Bochum team in which he regularly participated in the training sessions, as well as in official friendly games. Pavlidis was voted, according to FIFA, as one of the 15 greatest talents in the finals of the previous European U17 Championship in Bulgaria. The Westphalian team is betting a lot to the young striker since the 2016–17 season, so it hastened to bind him with a new contract until 2019, as German, English and Italian teams have been very interested in the past few years.[4]

On 15 May 2016, he made his debut with the club as a substitute in a 2. Bundesliga 4–2 away win against 1. FC Heidenheim.

On 26 January 2018, Pavlidis joined Borussia Dortmund II on loan for the second half of the season.[5] On 22 June 2018, Pavlidis loan spell was extented until summer 2019.[6] On 17 January 2019, Willem II confirmed the signing of young Greek international on loan from Bochum until the end of the 2018–19 season.[7] On 23 January 2019, he scored his first goal with the club after Marios Vrousai's assist in a 3-2 away KNVB Beker win against FC Twente.[8] On 16 February 2019, he scored his first goal in Eredivisie, with a right footed shot from very close range to the bottom right corner in a 3-2 away loss against Vitesse.[9]

Pavlidis only moved to Willem II as a loanee from German side VfL Bochum in January, but he’s already managed to make a solid impression in the Eredivisie, popping up with two goals and three assists in seven league games. He’s also registered one goal and one assist in the Dutch Cup. On 3 March 2019, Pavlidis struck gold netting his club’s second goal in a 2-4 loss to SC Heerenveen on the road. [10]

On 29 April 2019, Pavlidis will play his football with Willem II until 2022 after signing a permanent deal with the club.The 20-year-old striker, who was on the books at Bochum in Germany, made a loan move to the Eredivisie for Willem II in January and since then, has had a tremendous spell with the Dutch club. Across all competitions, the striker has scored four goals and registered five assists in 14 appearances. As a result, Willem II decided to make Pavlidis’ move a permanent one and the youngster signed a contract with the Dutch club through 2022. [11]
