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.
But he spent most of the last campaign coming off the bench.
The ex-Brisbane Roar attacker will hope the move can kick-start his career at both club and international level.
After making a substitute appearance for the Socceroos against Chile at last year's World Cup, Halloran has since struggled to break into Ange Postecogolou’s squad.
Heidenheim finished eighth in 2. Bundesliga last season, two places higher than Dusseldorf.
