Jeggo’s Austrian move a ‘stepping stone’

Jimmy Jeggo’s agent says his imminent move to Austrian Bundesliga club Sturm Graz is a “great stepping stone” for his career.

Jeggo flew out of Adelaide for Turkey on Wednesday where he will link up with Sturm Graz’s winter training camp.

Sturm Graz and Jeggo’s current club Adelaide United have agreed to a transfer fee for the 23-year-old who will undergo a medical in Turkey.

FourFourTwo understands discussions on personal terms are ongoing although the contract length could be between two-to-four years.

Jeggo’s agent Buddy Farah said the deal has happened quickly.

Sturm Graz did make a play for the Vienna-born midfielder back in June, although their offer was rejected by United.

“It’s the perfect opportunity for the kid,” Farah told FourFourTwo.

“He’s been a consistent performer in the A-League in recent times.

“His move from Melbourne Victory to Adelaide United has been really good for him, particularly with the influence of Josep Gombau.

“Austria is a great stepping stone for him, the Austrian Bundesliga is a good league.”

Sturm Graz are currently fourth on the Bundesliga table after 20 matches
