Australian Legend Tim Cahill is in talks with Jamshedpur FC to play in the 2018-19 Indian Super League.
The 38-year-old announced his retirement from international football in July but ruled out the prospect of an A-League return saying he intended to live in America, prompting speculation the striker was looking to move back to Major League Soccer.
Cahill is now close to signing for Jamshedpur FC in the Indian Super League, with the striker now in advanced talks about a move. A deal is expected to be announced soon and talks are heading in the right direction, as things stand.
Cahill was released by Millwall at the end of last season and is currently a free agent. The Aussie made over 200 appearances for Everton during his eight-year long stay at the Goodison Park, scoring over 50 times under the tutelage of David Moyes.
Cahill, who is Australia’s leading international goalscorer, retired from the Socceroos with 50 goals in 107 caps. A move to Jamshedpur FC could provide a much-needed boost to the club, which scored the ISL’s second lowest amount of goals in the 2017-18 season.
