Stelios Kitsiou was born on 28 September 1993 in Menemeni, Thessaloniki. In 2007 he joined the youth system of PAOK and became an important member of the U17 and U20 squads, before signing his first professional contract with PAOK, in early 2012.

During the 2012-13 season, he made his debut for PAOK’s senior squad and got to play in some matches, but not as many as he would have hoped. However he made it to the deciding play-offs and was introduced at the right side of the defence (filling the void of injured Konstantinidis) in the crucial last encounter against PAS at Giannina. His performances (either as a defensive midfielder, right back or interior) and his personality became his calling card, as Huub Stevens was checking out his upgraded roster for 2013-14.

In the preseason, he snatched the opportunity and Stevens rewarded him. Kitsiou became the starting right full-back for season 2013-14. His performances vindincated the Dutch manager and he was dubbed as the right full-back of the next decade. He became indispensable for the team last season and conjured up 2 goals in 46 encounters in all competitions.

He also was called by Greece U21 squad, netting his first goal in his first official match.
