Aaron Mooy made his senior debut for Scottish Premier League club St.Mirren’s in 2010, after coming through the youth ranks at Championship side Bolton Wanderers.
The 24-year-old moved home on a free-transfer to be part of Western Sydney’s inaugural campaign, where he spent two seasons before joining current club Melbourne City FC.
The central midfielder has built his game on his strong defensive work but has developed a flair in front of goal also, netting five times in just 19 appearances for City and laying on several others from set-piece duties.
Mooy made his Socceroos debut in 2012 against Guam, scoring from a free-kick in a match Australia won 9-0. He has scored three goals in total from his four international caps.
After missing out on Australia's AFC Asian Cup squad Mooy was selected for the March friendly matches against Germany and FYR Macedonia.
