Aussies Abroad: Aziz Behich inks deal with Girensunspor, Devlin confirms overseas move

Aziz Behich has officially found a new club in Turkey, signing for Giresunspor on a one-year deal - while Olyroo Cam Devlin is on the brink of an exciting first move abroad. 

Following the conclusion of his contract with Istanbul İstanbul Başakşehir F.K., for whom he spent last season on loan at Kayserispor, the Socceroos fullback opted to remain in the Turkish Super League. 

Behich has made over 150 appearances in the competition since first joining Bursaspor in 2013 - whilst continuing to impress at international level. 

He now joins a newly-promoted club in Giresunspor, who secured a place in the Super League for the first time in 44 years last season. 

The club was founded as three others merged in 1967 and have only once previously enjoyed a stint in the top flight - from 1971 to 1977. 

Last season, Behich played his part in helping ensure Kayserispor avoided the drop on the final day of the season, and his immediate challenge will be to similarly lift Giresunspor off the foot of the ladder after they suffered back-to-back defeats to commence the season. 

The former Melbourne-based defender's new destination also recently signed a player A-League fans are familiar with, in Joey Champness - a former Young Socceroo and Australia U-23 who represented New Zealand at the recent Tokyo 2020 Olympic Men's Football Tournament. 

Another player who took part in the tournament was Olyroos midfielder Cam Devlin - who today confirmed he is set to put pen on paper with Scottish outfit Hearts. 

The midfielder has rose to prominence over recent years in the A-League with Wellington Phoenix, and after appearing for Australia during their final Tokyo 2020 group game against Egypt, will be determined to continue his momentum as he approaches a new challenge at club level.
