Recalled? It's not like we'll be using him in the remaining two games of the season. Mind you, he obviously didn't make much of an impression at Blackpool.
This is his big chance with the new boss. Big Luke hasn't impressed that much recently, Time for the Big Greek. Apocalypse now!
Let's face it, the only reason he is back is because Blackpool didn't like his attitude, there is no other reason he has been returned to us.  Blackpool are still not mathematically safe from relegation so why would they send a "premiership" striker back?
So it wasn't us asking for him back then?
don't know but given that we have stuck with Lukaku, Naismith, and Mirallas and Deulefeu as strikers all season without using him, why would we ask for him back now?  He's played one and a half games for them (substituted and never played again) and scored no goals  Neutral 

Had high hopes for him, but I think he is out of contract in the summer, or maybe in January(?) and it doesn't look like he is good enough or willing enough to be a footballer.

Unfortunately I think you've hit the nail on the head on both counts.

Everton striker Apostolos Vellios has sparked speculation about his future with a Twitter post that appears to be a farewell message to the club.

The Greek forward, who has spent the latter part of the season on loan at Blackpool, thanked former manager David Moyes and the team's supporters in his apparent goodbye tweet.

"Thank you for everything Mr David Moyes," he wrote on the social network.

"I would like to thank you Everton for these [three-and-a-half] years of my life, but most of all a big thanks to Evertonians. You will always be in my heart."

Vellios joined Everton from Greek outfit Iraklis in 2011 and has scored three goals during his time in English football.

He has another half season contracted to us, so he's either getting a transfer, or his contract has been cancelled?
He took the money and ran. (probably not much money though)

He has to be one of the dross that gets his ticket elsewhere in the summer. I know he looked ok a couple of years ago, but clearly not the right mindset.
I can't really think of any else who should get his marching orders.

Striker Apostolos Vellios has left Everton, manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed.

The 22-year-old, a 2011 arrival from Iraklis Thessaloniki, is out of contract at Goodison Park and will now be free to find a new club.

In total, Vellios scored three goals in 24 outings for the Blues but did not make a single appearance during the 2013/14 campaign.

"I think it's been a disappointing season for himself but he's always had a terrific attitude and always a real desire to try to work hard for the team," Martinez told evertontv.

"He's probably in a position now where, at a very young age still, he needs a new challenge and a new environment to show what he can do.

"We wish him well and I'm sure every Evertonian will follow me with that."

Shame.  I thought he showed some glimses of promise whenever I saw him play.  My guess is that he'll end up playing a decent role for a championship side, or maybe in scotland.

Oh well. He looked good when he played but hardly ever played. The Blackpool loan was strange.

There were glimmers of hope, but I never really bought into the guy. Can't say I am that upset with him leaving.

He looked like he had a future under Moyes but Martinez has never seemed to fancy giving him a chance. I always thought he looked a decent prospect. Just hope that we sign a couple of strikers this summer so it won't matter. Don't fancy starting the season with an injured Kone and McAleny as our first two striking options.

Unbelievably he scored as many as ten goals for us.

Nottingham Forest have signed ex-Everton striker Apostolos Vellios from Greek club Iraklis Thessaloniki on a four-year deal for a reported £1m. The 24-year-old is Forest's first signing since the Philippe Montanier's appointment as head coach on Monday.

Vellios had a three-and-a-half-year spell at Everton, but made just two Premier League starts for the club. His previous time in England also included a loan spell at Blackpool, where he made two appearances.

Vellios joined Belgian side Lierse in 2014 and the following year he returned to Iraklis - the club where he started his career. He scored 11 goals in the Greek Super League last season.
