Vangelis Platellas (Greek: Βαγγέλης Πλατέλλας, born 1 December 1988) is a Greek footballer who plays as a winger for Aris.
Vangelis Platellas began playing professional football for Football League side Kallithea, and then transferred on 2 January 2012 to Super league side Skoda Xanthi. In the summer of 2013, Platellas signed with Greek AEK Athens. In the 2013-14 season, Platellas made 25 appearances scoring 15 goals. On 8 December 2016, AEK's winger was not included in match squad ahead of Levadiakos home clash and seems to be out of technical staff plans.
It seems that the 28-year-old international, who joined the Greek Cup winners back in 2013 and his current contract expires at the end of 2016-17 season, will leave the club in January window in order to continue his career elsewhere. On 28 December 2016, he signed a 1,5 years' contract with Greek Super League club Atromitos for an undisclosed fee. On 18 February 2017, he opened the score in a 2-1 home win against Xanthi. On 31 August 2017, he solved his contract with the club. On 11 September 2017, he signed a year contract with Football League club Aris for an undisclosed fee.
Platellas was called in to the Greece national football team by Kostas Tsanas for a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Romania.
