Qantas Socceroos skipper Lucas Neill has been linked to Qatar club Al Saliya, say reports.
Qantas Socceroos captain Lucas Neill appears to be one step closer to finding a new club with Qatari saide Al Saliya reportedly interested in acquiring Neill to tighten up their defence.
Al Saliya had previously been chasing Matthew Spiranovic, but failed to sign him and are now after the Aussie skipper, who has remained without a club since he was released by Al Jazira in June.
Should he sign, Neill would join a growing list of Australians in Qatar that includes Mark Bresciano and Sasa Ognenovski.
The reports come on the back of Qantas Socceroos coach Holger Osieck stating that Neill had been training with clubs in the Middle East and was close to signing a new deal.
Transfer rumours are not confirmed signings and should not be considered an official statement
