The gifted former Sydney FC star, still only 22, has made just six appearances in all competitions since heading to PAOK on a two-year deal last August.
But he has not given up on making a breakthrough at the powerhouse Greek Super League club and just wants to go out and "get some game time at a good club".
“I am waiting to see what comes up but for now I want stay in Europe and show what I can accomplish here first, before thinking about the A-League," he explained.
“I want to see how far I can go … I feel fit and I am willing to play, which I didn’t do that much of last year.
“I want to come back to the A-League someday, but now is not the time for me to go back.
“I knew it was going to be tough because PAOK are a big club, and I have trained with some top players here and I have learned a lot already.
“I just need to play each week now and progress further.”
Antonis, who cost PAOK $500,000, hopes to have his immediate future sealed within a few weeks and is unsure whether he will remain in Greece or move to another European league.
“Hopefully I will know something soon … I am just looking forward to a big season.
"After that I aim to go back to PAOK a better player and push on for a first team place there. I still have two years left on my contract and I am aiming as high as I can.
PAOK are a great club and I want to show that I can still have a future with them.”
PAOK's coach Vladimir Ivic is happy to let Antonis go to replenish his squad with higher profile captures as the club chases a spot in the UEFA Champions League main draw.
