Triadis is a versatile attacking midfielder, possessing excellent vision and a good passing range. He is also comfortable playing through the wings utilising his deceptive pace, which makes him lethal on the break.
As a Greek born in Germany, Triadis has represented the German national team in the U15, U16 and U17 levels. He has also played for the Greece U19 national team.
Having plied his trade in clubs like SV Wehen Wiesbaden, Xanthi FC and Apollon Smyrnis FC, Triadis will bring in a wealth of experience to reinforce NorthEast's attacking repertoire.
Highlanders' head coach Eelco Schattorie was delighted with the latest addition to the squad and said, "Triadis is a player that can play on the wings and midfield. He has the German fighting spirit in him which is always welcome. Hope he hits the ground running as we are already short on time. We welcome him into our family and will support him all the way."
