Socceroos stars in club limbo

A number of Socceroos stars remain without a club as the 2015-16 football season gets underway across Europe.

Tommy Oar, Chris Herd and Oliver Bozanic are among some of the names who are still yet to find a club for this season.

Oar has reportedly attracted interest from Japan, but will likely stay in Europe with a few clubs after his signature following the end of a five-year spell at FC Utrecht.

Bozanic departed Swiss club FC Luzern last month after two seasons, while Chris Herd is no longer on the books of English Premier League club Aston Villa.

Herd has stated he is not interested in a move home to the A-League, instead opting to fight for a return to the Premier League.

James Troisi, scorer of the winning goal in the 2015 Asian Cup Final, is another player without a clear future.

Troisi has a year left to run on his contract with Serie A champions Juventus, but is looking for a loan or permanent move away from the Italian club to chase first-team action.

With a number of leagues kicking off around Europe on Saturday, Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou will surely be hoping some of his important squad players settle their club future as soon as possible.

Brad Jones, Shane Lowry, Tomi Juric and Nikita Rukavystya are also some fringe Socceroos players without a club at the moment.
