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.
