Mooy figures as arguably as Australia's most important player following three excellent Premier League seasons with Huddersfield Town and then Brighton & Hove Albion.
An inability to break through at Bolton Wanderers in the late 2000s and an injury-hit spell with St Mirren convinced the creative midfielder to return home in a bid to reinvigorate his bid to become a Premier League player.
He laid the foundation at Western Sydney Wanderers and spectacularly hit top gear with Melbourne City, an irresistible run of form proving impossible for parent club Manchester City to ignore.
Sent on loan to Huddersfield Town, he proved a hit in the Championship as the club won promotion and parted with £8million to take him on a permanent basis, a decision Mooy justified by helping keep them avoid relegation in their first season, the second season was less fortunate for 'The Terriers', culminating in Mooy's departure to Brighton in order to retain regular top flight football.
