Birighitti looks to seal Leverkusen switch

Mark Birighitti has told he hopes to get over the disappointment of being cut from Australia's World Cup squad by finalising a move to Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen.

The goalkeeper was one of four players left out of Ange Postecoglou's final 23-man roster for the tournament in Brazil.

Unlike fellow cast-offs Tom Rogic, Josh Kennedy and Luke Wilkshire, he will remain in camp until the Socceroos' first Group B clash against Chile on June 13 as cover for Mat Ryan, Mitch Langerak and Eugene Galekovic.

The 23-year-old also has something to look forward to in the wake of his omission, with the Newcastle Jets man potentially set to join fellow Socceroo Robbie Kruse at the BayArena next season.
