Qantas Socceroo striker Mark Viduka today completed his £4.5million move to Middlesbrough, while fellow national team members Tim Cahill and Craig Moore were also in the news. Cahill (pictured right), according to reports from Britain, will transfer to newly promoted Premier League club Crystal Palace, while in Scotland Moore has been transfer listed by Rangers. Viduka signed a three-year deal which includes an option of a fourth to bring an end to his four-year association with Leeds United. The 28-year-old former Croatia Zagreb and Celtic hitman, is the second signing in three days for Boro manager Steve McClaren, after Dutch defender Michael Reiziger completed his move on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Cahill-s meteoric rise continued with Palace agreeing a £2million fee for his transfer from Millwall.
Cahill will join fellow Qantas Socceroo Tony Popovic at Palace, although Popovic is waiting on a work permit being granted, after agreeing to a new two-year deal. Despite the agreement between the two clubs, the 24-year-old Cahill has yet to agree personal terms and pass a medical. The news however for incumbent Australian captain Craig Moore is not so good, after Rangers decided to place their central defender on the transfer list. Moore, who was already stripped of his club captaincy, is set to play with the Australian Under 23 team at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, much to the displeasure of his Rangers coach Alex McLeish.
