Socceroos striker Tim Cahill has re-signed with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua, ending speculation about a possible move for the off-contract star.
The 35-year-old originally joined the Chinese Super League outfit on a one-year deal from New York Red Bulls but on Thursday put pen to paper on an option to extend.
Cahill has been in vintage form in recent weeks and is Shenhua's leading goalscorer with 11 goals this season.
The all-time leading Socceroos scorer was again on the scoresheet on the weekend and provided an assist to help his club into the Chinese FA Cup Final.
Cahill was this week named in Ange Postecoglou's 23-man Socceroos squad that will contest FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Kyrgyzstan and Bangladesh early next month.
