The 23-year-old Newcastle Jets man has just finished playing for his country at the Olympics in Japan and is awaiting permission to head to Edinburgh, where he will sign a long-term contract.

He operates mainly as a central midfielder, however the occasional break forward can result in spectacular goals. His only strike for former club Wellington Phoenix last season was dispatched from more than 25 yards out and earned him the club’s goal of the season award.
