Adam Federici was a product of the Australian Institute of Sport before moving to England as a 17-year-old where he has spent the majority of his professional career.
After initially signing for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Federici found a home at Reading where he has made over 200 appearances for the Championship side over the last decade.
