Tim Cahill 'comes home' to Millwall 14 years after leaving the club

Tim Cahill 'comes home' to Millwall 14 years after leaving the club

Tim Cahill's search for a new club is nearly over, with the Socceroos legend set to meet with former club Millwall in England this weekend. It is Millwall too where he wishes to end his career, according Sky Sports, and is expected to sign in the next few days.

Australia's all-time leading goal scorer Tim Cahill is going back to where it began, rejoining English Championship side Millwall as he seeks to return to regular football in the run-up to the World Cup.

Cahill departed Melbourne City in December amid reports he fell out with coach Warren Joyce.

Cahill played 251 matches at The Den between 1998 and 2004, scoring 57 goals before leaving for Everton and the Premier League.

Cahill has played all across the world having being contracted to the likes of Shanghai Shenhua in China, the New York Red Bulls in the US and most recently Melbourne City in his native Australia. "I've always said that if I came back to England, I'd come home", he told the Millwall website.

And we have been told that terms have been sorted with Cahill, who is hoping that his game time with the club will help secure his place in the Socceroos' squad for this summer's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

"I'm coming home" Cahill tweeted.

"The romance of the story is definitely not lost on me", Cahill said.

"I want to thank Melbourne City, the players and the staff, and especially the fans".

"To come home to where it all started, it's emotional, but it's happy emotions, because you wish for it to happen, you want it to happen, but when it finally comes to fruition, it's the flawless move".

"He is a different player to what he was years ago - he plays a little higher up the park now. To start with, we are thinking about impact - someone to come off of the bench and give us that little lift, someone to lift the crowd and someone to pass on that knowledge when in front or behind".
