The Socceroos' Asian Cup final hero James Troisi says he will consider a short-term Hyundai A-League move as he seeks regular first-team football in 2015-16.
The 27-year-old attacking midfielder is owned by Juventus but has never played for the Turin giants and is unlikely to feature in their Serie A title defence during the coming campaign.
Troisi enjoyed a productive loan spell at Belgian club Zulte Waregem last term but appears no closer to securing his next loan move or permanent transfer.
And the man who scored the winning extra-time goal in the Socceroos' 2-1 Asian Cup final win over South Korea in January may have to accept a temporary return home, where he starred on loan for Melbourne Victory in 2013-14.
"I'm open [to a move] but whether it's Europe, Asia, the Middle East or the A-League, it has to be the right move," he told News Corp.
"I'm not 21 anymore, I'm 27 and I've been travelling quite a bit so I'm looking for a bit more security. If it's the A-League though then I would be prepared to accept something more short-term.
"It's only a few weeks before the transfer window closes so if nothing happens then I may have to go to Juve."
