Caltex Socceroos winger leaves J.League outfit

Australian winger Ben Halloran is on the hunt for a new home after leaving J.League side V-Varen Nagasaki.

In a statement, the club cited "family circumstances" as the reason for the mutual termination of the 26-year-old's contract.

Halloran, capped six times by the Caltex Socceroos, signed for Nagasaki in January and made 10 appearances in all competitions.

His move to Japan from Heidenheim ended a successful four and a half year stay in Germany which began at Fortuna Dusseldorf in 2013.

Each of Halloran's appearances for Australia were won the following year as a six-goal first season at Dusseldorf was rewarded with a place in the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ squad.

The former Hyundai A-League prodigy went on to feature as a substitute in all three matches at the tournament.
