Duff completes Melbourne switch

Melbourne City have signed former Republic of Ireland international Damien Duff on a twelve-month contract, The Guardian understands.

The 35 year old ended his five-year spell with Fulham following their relegation to the Championship last month.

Duff has spent his whole career so far playing in England, racking up almost four-hundred top-flight appearances in spells with Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea, Newcastle United and Fulham.

However, he will now ply his trade in Australia’s A League with Melbourne, who were recently taken over by Manchester City.

Duff, who retired from international football after the 2012 European Championships in Poland and Ukraine with 100 caps, will link up with Spain international David Villa, who will begin the season in Melbourne after signing for New York City, another team owned by the Premier League champions.

Melbourne City are favourites to win the A League Grand Final next season, and can be backed at a price of 5/1.
