For some time it was unclear whether he would stay at APOEL or return back to AEL Limassol after a decent Season with them on-loan. AEL's coach recently said that he expected them to join their Pre-Season camp in Bulgaria, however in the end not only it didn't happen, but today he was also named at APOEL's Champions-League Qualifying 2nd-round squad Vs Sutjeska Nikšić. Still a lot of time in the transfer-window for things to change, of course.
Last Season on-loan at AEL Limassol he experienced a reasonably good Season, playing most often as a starter and scoring 5 goals, and as a result AEL wanted to keep him as I have said above. For AEL Limassol he played mainly as a Secondary-Striker alongside a Center-Forward Ruben Jurado in a 3-5-2, and they had a good partnership and co-operations between them, with Makris using his pace and energy to help them at counter-attacks and pressing. He also played sometimes as a Winger for them, mainly on the Right.
His Season at AEL wasn't amazing, but proven to be good enough for him to be called back into the Cyprus squad, not only as a bench-option, but also as a starter. Even more surprisingly, he was chosen as a Right/Wing-Back for Cyprus in the recent matches in June Vs Scotland and Russia!
His performances at Right/Wing-Back weren't bad, but still not as good as his ones as a Secondary-Striker which is his primary-position, however surprisingly after those appearances as Right/Wing-Back for Cyprus, APOEL started to use him in that position as well in this Season's friendly-matches, as Right/Wing-Back in a 3-5-2. An example of this was last Tuesday's 2-1 friendly win Vs Doxa Katokopias where he assisted APOEL's equaliser to Vujadin Savic playing in that position: https://youtu.be/teOgFFN2dn8?t=297 . As a result, maybe WB position needs to be added as Secondary-Position.
