Troisi to Belgium?

It appears James Troisi won’t be coming back to the Hyundai A-League this season, with reports the Socceroo attacker is close to signing with Belgian club Zulte Waregem.

Troisi spent last season at Melbourne Victory on loan from Italian champions Juventus and Adelaide United were hopeful of bringing him back home on a similar deal this season.

The 26-year-old from Adelaide has been back in training with the Juve squad in Turin as he looks to sort out his immediate future.

And it appears something is about to happen with reports the Bianconeri are ready to sell the classy midfielder to the Belgian Pro League club.

In a story in the Adelaide Advertiser last week, Adelaide director of football Michael Petrillo confirmed the club were hopeful of finalizing a deal for Troisi. "We're still very interested if a deal can be worked out," Petrillo said last week. "We know he's gone back to sort out some issues with Juventus."
