Caltex Socceroos transfer window update

With so much transfer action happening, we round up the latest moves involving our Caltex Socceroos.

Mat Ryan

Transfer details: loan

Moved from Valencia in Spain to Belgian club KRC Genk on loan until the end of this season.


Having made just two appearances for the La Liga club this season, Ryan returns to the country where his European club career took off atClub Brugge. Has already made his debut for Genk in the Belgium Cup overnight and should get plenty of game action leading into March’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Iraq and UAE.

Bailey Wright

Transfer details: permanent 

Made the permanent move from Preston North End to fellow Championship club Bristol City on a two-and-a-half year deal.


With his contract almost up at Preston, the tough-tackling centre-back decided to leave the club after seven years and more than 200 appearances. Wright has not only slotted straight into Bristol’s defence but has been made the club’s skipper.
