Socceroos pair set to join Dutch club

Socceroos duo Tomi Juric and Danny De Silva are both on the verge of signing with Eredivisie club Roda JC Kerkrade according to Dutch reports.

Local newspaper 1Limburg has reported that the pair have both travelled to Roda where they only need to pass medical examinations to complete their respective deals.

It is expected that they will sign their contracts on either Wednesday evening (European time) or Thursday.

Only last month, Roda signed fellow Australian Rostyn Griffiths, who played the full 90 minutes in their opening match of the season, a 3-1 win over Heracles on Saturday. 

De Silva, 18, has been linked with a loan move away from Italian powerhouse AS Roma whom he joined from Perth Glory in the winter.

Juric has been a free agent since opting to walk away from Western Sydney Wanderers earlier in the off-season to chase a European switch.

The 24-year-old Asian Cup final hero had been linked with Swiss giants FC Basel along with Roda whom he reportedly visited last week.

Meanwhile, Voetbal International has reported Roda JC could look to another Australian, Adam Taggart, if the Juric move fails to materialise.

Taggart is yet to make his Fulham debut after an injury savaged first season in England and would move on loan, but previously told FourFourTwo that any switch would be a "last resort".

After some promising displays in pre-season for the Cottagers, the young Socceroos striker missed Fulham's opening game of the Championship due to a hamstring complaint.
