Thread for news and info on Aussies playing abroad.

First up I wonder what has happened to James Holland? He's still listed as being part of the AZ Alkmaar squad however he hasn't played a single game..

He was playing well in the HAL and even got a few Socceroos caps.. He's a forgotten man these days..

Injured Harry Kewell set to survive Galatasaray axe 

Harry Kewell looks set to remain with Galatasaray until at least the end of the season after the Turkish club opted to cut striker Shabani Nonda instead.

Speculation was mounting the club could look to offload the 31-year-old Socceroos winger before his contract expired at the end of the current campaign due to his latest groin injury, suffered last month.

Kewell is in Sydney seeking medical advice on the problem and its extent is not expected to be known until early next week.

With Galatasaray's summer spending spree taking their number of foreign players above the allowed quota, Kewell appeared to be in the firing line of coach Frank Rijkaard despite his success in Turkey.

But the club has announced on their website the release of 32-year-old Congolese striker Nonda, who formerly played with Blackburn Rovers and AS Roma.

That will come as a relief to Kewell's many fans at the Istanbul club, who even set up a website - www.staywithusharry.com - dedicated to convincing the Socceroo to stay beyond next season.
The former Leeds United and Liverpool midfielder has been a revelation since signing with the club two seasons ago, netting 27 goals in 62 games.

He was joined at the club this month by Socceroos captain Lucas Neill, who was signed as part of a spending spree that also netted fellow Barclays Premier League players Elano, Giovani dos Santos and Jo.

It is hoped Kewell's latest injury will only keep him out of action for another month, but he is seeking several expert opinions.

In a worst-case scenario, Kewell could require longer treatment or even surgery which could impact significantly on the Socceroos' World Cup campaign in June.

"He is seeing a variety of specialists, as Harry usually does, and he will be guided by their medical opinion," his agent Bernie Mandic told The World Game website.

"We should know by Monday what the prognosis is."

Leeds snap up Villa star on loan

Leeds boss Simon Grayson is snapping up Aston Villa's Australian centre-half Shane Lowry on loan for the rest of the season.

Grayson has agreed a deal to take the highly-rated defender, who is in Martin O'Neill's plans but will be sent out for a second spell to get first-team football - and boost his chances of making the Socceroos World Cup squad.

Lowry was with Plymouth earlier in the season but turned down a return to join the Leeds prompotion bandwagon. He could also be eligible for the FA Cup fifth round if they get past Tottenham in the replay.

http://www.mirrorfootball.co.uk/news/Transfer-news-Leeds-snap-up-Villa-star-on-loan-article304175.html

Also a mention on Aston Villa.com but not a full article. Should be a good move for him and hopefully he gets some game time before the WC

Harry Kewell only expected to miss a month with groin injury

The Socceroos' World Cup aspirations have received a boost with Harry Kewell's management saying the Australia winger should only miss a month with his latest injury.
Kewell has been in Sydney the past week seeking medical advice on a groin problem which has prevented him from playing with his Turkish club side Galatasaray since December.

There had been fears the injury was a recurrence of an adductor problem that cruelled Kewell's stint with Liverpool and that he could be out for up to five months, throwing his World Cup campaign into jeopardy.

But after visiting several specialists in Sydney, Kewell has learned he does not need surgery with agent Bernie Mandic saying the 31-year-old star should be back on the pitch within four weeks.

Other reports were suggesting Kewell could be back training within two weeks.

The news will also come as a relief to Galatasaray, who were reportedly considering releasing Kewell due to fears over the extent of his injury.

Any concerns Kewell could be punted by the club were allayed when they released Congolese striker Shabani Nonda to take them back inside the quota of the number of allowed foreign players.

Kewell has been a revelation since signing with the club two seasons ago, netting 27 goals in 62 games.

Fans of the club are desperate for him to re-sign when his contract expires at the end of this season, even setting up a website - www.staywithusharry.com - for the cause.

It is believed he has already attracted interest from a number of clubs in Europe.

Nikita Rukavytsya can provide X-factor for Socceroos coach Pim Verbeek

With 132 days to go before football's holy grail, the 2020 FIFA World Cup finals in South Africa, the Socceroos are facing the final and most crucial period of their preparation.

Coach Pim Verbeek has selection headaches, and worries with injuries and player availability, which is why every day between now and June 11 is critical to Australia's success.

Young Gun
Verbeek is a conservative man, but don't be surprised if he comes up with a shock World Cup selection in Nikita Rukavytsya. The 22-year-old winger could be the X-factor in South Africa with his electrifying pace and left foot.

The former Perth Glory player is inexperienced on the international stage, but he doesn't lack confidence taking on players.

The boy from Ukraine, who represented Australia at the Beijing Olympics, appears to have made the right move going on loan from Dutch club FC Twente to Belgian outfit KSV Roeselare. He has only played two matches, but he scored a double against Lokeren in the Belgian first division last weekend.

The Local
If Verbeek had to select his squad today, then Archie Thompson would be first on the plane.

I know the Socceroos coach doesn't think highly of players in the A-League, but Thompson is a special case.

When Verbeek releases his 23-man squad for South Africa, there will probably be only one A-League player on the official list - Jason Culina - but I honestly believe the Dutchman would be foolish to leave the Melbourne Victory striker at home.

For me, he's in the best form of his career. And Australia are short on quality strikers. Harry Kewell, providing he's fit, will lead the line. There's Josh Kennedy, and I still think Scott McDonald, despite not having scored a goal for Australia, will go.

You'd like to think that Thompson ticks a lot of boxes in respect of Melbourne Victory playing in the Asian Champions League, so he will be fit.

I just think he will be invaluable at the World Cup because of the way he works the line and looks for space.

The players we have all want to come to the ball. We haven't got many players, apart from Brett Holman, who like to get in beyond defenders. But Archie not only scores goals but he also assists as well.

Departure Lounge
Verbeek put the pressure on Australian-based players to find clubs abroad once they finished their commitments in the A-League.

We've already seen Craig Moore leave Brisbane Roar and go to play in Greece, and Perth Glory's Mile Sterjovski is weighing up a loan deal in China.

Sydney FC striker Alex Brosque would have to be an outsider. The big negative for Brosque, unfortunately, is that his season ends when Sydney's season ends. Therefore, he isn't ticking the box that Thompson has ticked by playing in the Asian Champions League.

Thompson also has that experience of having been to a World Cup in Germany.

To put it bluntly, there's Culina and maybe Thompson, but forget the rest of the A-League players. They've got Buckley's.

Verbeek has been travelling around the country watching the A-League games and giving players hope that some will be on the plane to South Africa. But remember that he has to select a Socceroos team of domestic players for the Asian Cup qualifier against Indonesia in Brisbane early in March.

That's the only international fixture for the Socceroos before Verbeek names his World Cup squad.

You can bet he knows his travelling party.

Casualty Ward
Injuries to regulars Kewell, Vince Grella and Carl Valeri could upset Verbeek's plans. That would throw the cat among the pigeons and open doors for others.

I believe one of the players who has already booked his place to South Africa is Leeds United defender Patrick Kisnorbo.

He was out of the picture for a long time, but I just think he's overtaken Mark Milligan and Jade North.

If anything happens to Lucas Neill or Moore, Kisnorbo could even find himself starting in the centre of defence at the World Cup.

Kisnorbo has drawn a lot of attention with his performances in Leeds's FA Cup run, and he has proved himself against high-quality opposition from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

North and Milligan may well regret their respective moves to Korea and China. Milligan has since gone to Japan. Money is one thing, but they'll be saying to themselves they have probably blown their World Cup dreams.

Like all coaches going to the World Cup, Verbeek will be praying nothing serious happens to his first-choice players.

agree on Patty. He's been rock solid for Leeds all season and has made me eat humble pie when i laughed at his signing.

Kilkenny has also bounced back from his arnoldification.. and could be a long-shot to make the cup.

Scott McDonald set for English Championship switch: reports

Socceroos striker Scott McDonald appears to be on his way to English Championship side Middlesbrough to reunite with former Celtic boss Gordon Strachan.

Several reports in England and Scotland say the diminutive Celtic frontman is on the verge of agreeing personal terms after the two clubs settled on a transfer fee, reportedly around
£4 million ($A7.26 million).

With the summer transfer window due to shut at 5pm on Monday in the United Kingdom (4am Tues EDT), McDonald's future will finally be settled after speculation as to whether he will stay at Celtic Park.

Barclays Premier League clubs West Ham United or Wigan Athletic could still make a late swoop for his signature, while Celtic manager Tony Mowbray insists the striker still has a future with the club.

The 26-year-old has scored 65 times in 126 appearances for the Hoops but his game time and form have suffered slightly since Mowbray took over as manager this season.

Mowbray admitted this week there was interest in McDonald but said he would still be happy to keep him at the club.

But with the manager involved in negotiations to get several new players to Celtic Park, including a loan move for Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara, speculation has intensified the Australian will leave the club he joined from Motherwell in 2007.

McDonald, currently recovering from hernia surgery, would follow former Celtic teammates Barry Robson, Willo Flood, Stephen McManus and Chris Killen in heading to the Riverside Stadium to rejoin Strachan during the transfer window.

He would also link up with fellow Socceroos Rhys Williams and Brad Jones at the club, which is a former home of Socceroos greats Mark Viduka and Mark Schwarzer.

Boro sit ninth in the second-tier Championship and are firmly entrenched in the battle to earn promotion back into the top flight.

McDonald has long expressed his desire to return to England after unhappy stints with Southampton and Wimbledon earlier in his career.

He will also be hoping to resurrect his hopes of going to the World Cup this June after appearing to fall out of favour with Socceroos coach Pim Verbeek in the past six months.

McDonald has been unable to replicate his success with Celtic for his country, yet to score a goal in 15 appearances for Australia.

Macca: I Had To Get Out

SOCCEROO Scott McDonald admits he had to get out of Celtic after manager Tony Mowbray rang the changes...but regrets not getting the chance to partner Robbie Keane.

McDonald made the $6 million move to English Championship side Middlesbrough to reunite with former Celtic boss Gordon Strachan in one of the biggest switches of the transfer window deadline day.

But his move was overshadowed by his replacement at Celtic when Mowbray signed Spurs hitman Keane on loan.

"The Robbie Keane move has taken me by surprise," he told Scotland's Daily Record. "Robbie's a great player and part of me thinks it would have been great to be at Celtic with him.

"Because of the type of person I am my first instinct is to think, 'We could have had a great partnership'. I think like that because I've never ever doubted my ability.

"Then again, maybe the manager would see things differently. Let's be honest, all these signings Celtic have made haven't just been planned overnight.

"The club must have been working on them for a while, so my decision to leave has probably been vindicated by the news Robbie is on his way up the road. I'm doing what is best for my own career."

McDonald admitted recent months at the club have been a struggle since Mowbray came in and started leaving the 27 year old on the bench, despite his impeccable record of 65 goals in 126 appearaces for Celtic.

As the transfer window loomed, McDonald realised he had to move on. Mowbray signed a string of new players in the January transfer window, including Keane and former Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara, while selling off even more.

"It didn't come as a shock," he said. "The day the manager said he wanted 10 new players was the day we all knew changes were coming.

"He certainly wasn't joking, was he? There can be no excuses now if things don't work out for him."

McDonald added: "It has been a very emotional time for me.

"Since Middlesbrough put in their bid last week there has been a lot of back and forth between the clubs and my head has been in a spin. Now it's all been completed I'm glad it's done and I know where my future lies.

"I know I'm going to get the chance to play football down here under a manager who rates me and that's the bottom line.

"But the truth is I leave Celtic with a heavy heart. It's a special place and I'll take some great memories with me. We won the title there and that was the best moment of my career.

"I wish I had won a lot more but at least I'll always be able to look back on my time at the club as a success. In an ideal world, I'd have spent the rest of my career at Celtic.

"Leaving them after just two-and-a-half seasons was not my plan. But sometimes unforeseen circumstances crop up and you are forced to reconsider your position. That's what has happened to me."

Despite his enforced departure for the sake of his career - and possible place at the World Cup with Australia - McDonald insists he doesn;t bear any grudges against Mowbray.

"I could probably sum it up in one word - frustrating," he said. "It was nothing more than that and it was certainly never personal.

"The manager was fine to work with and he had decisions to make which obviously not everyone could agree with. To say I've left because of my relationship with the manager would not be correct. That was certainly not the only aspect.

"Let's just say, I didn't agree with some of the things he did and then, when the transfer window opened, I started to hear a lot of rumours about players he wanted to sign.

"The way things were going made me reassess my position and when Middlesbrough came in I realised I had to make a change. I was playing a lot of games but wasn't finishing many and it was increasingly frustrating.

"I didn't join Celtic to be a bit part player and that's the way I was heading."

He added: "I can't blame Tony Mowbray for that.

"He's the boss and he's got to do what he thinks is best for the team. These are the decisions he has to make and he'll live or die by them in the end."

I know he's not the best player in the world but it must hurt being released from your contract twice, on the same day, from the same club.

There'd be at least one or two good signings in that lot. Wonder what happened at Crayons?
