Stathis Aloneftis (born March 29, 1983 in Nicosia, Cyprus) is a Cypriot footballer, currently playing for Omonoia. He is an attacking midfielder who tends to play on the left wing. He is highly regarded for his dribbling skills. He started his career with Omonia Nicosia, making his first appearance for the senior squad during the 2000-01 season however his real talent became apparent during 2003–04. His successes with Omonia include the championship and Super Cup (in 2001 and 2003) and the Cypriot Cup in 2005.

He then moved to the Greek side AEL Larissa in 2005 for a transfer fee CYP £136,000.[1] The season 2006-07 was good for Aloneftis and in January 2007 he went on trial to Queens Park Rangers, but nothing else has been confirmed.[2] At the end of the season he played with his team in the Cup final, where he was in the main beginning squad and his team beat 2-1 Panathinaikos FC and won the Cup. He is a regular pick for the Cyprus national football team.

On May 31, 2007 German side Energie Cottbus announced the signing of Aloneftis (Bosman ruling free transfer),[3] making him the first Cypriot to compete in the Bundesliga.[4]

On the 28 June 2008, he signed a five year deal to return to Omonia where he will play along side his teammate from the National team, Ioannis Okkas.[5]
