Socceroos flyer Ben Halloran has found a new home in Germany, signing with 2. Bundesliga club Heidenheim.
After two seasons with fellow 2. Bundesliga side Fortuna Dusseldorf, the 23-year-old has made the switch on a three-year deal.

Halloran made 37 appearances for Fortuna Dusseldorf, also a former club of fellow Socceroo Robbie Kruse, scoring eight goals.

The ex-Brisbane Roar attacker will hope the move can kick-start his career at both club and international level.

Heidenheim finished eighth in 2. Bundesliga last season, two places higher than Dusseldorf.
