Duff makes Australia move

Damien Duff has left relegated Fulham and joined Australian A-League side Melbourne City, reports BBC Sport.



The former Irish international, who won precisely 100 caps during his career, left Fulham when his contract expired at the end of their disastrous Premier League campaign.


With two Premier League winners medals in his pocket as well, the Australians know they have acquired a player with serious pedigree, with coach John van’t Schip saying: "We believe he can offer international standard quality on the pitch."


Duff, now 35 years old, failed to score in 18 senior appearances for the Craven Cottage club last season as they departed from the Premier League, but has been given a one-year contract in Melbourne.


After making his debut for Blackburn in 1997 at the age of 18, he went on to represent Chelsea and Newcastle United before his five years at Craven Cottage.


Duff is not the only exciting European veteran who will be present in Melbourne next term, as City have also captured the Spanish international David Villa. The former Atletico Madrid striker will play on loan for a season in the A-League in preparation for his move to Major League Soccer and New York City.
