Moss set for Melbourne move

Melbourne Victory today announced that New Zealand international goalkeeper Glen Moss will join the club from Wellington Phoenix for the Hyundai A-League 2009/10 season.

Melbourne Victory today announced that New Zealand international goalkeeper Glen Moss will join the club from Wellington Phoenix for the Hyundai A-League 2009/10 season.

Moss, who is also an Australian citizen, will spend the remainder of the Hyundai A-League 2008/09 season with Phoenix before moving across the Tasman to Victory on a two-year deal.

The All Whites custodian has also had stints in England, Scotland and Romania and is currently in Fiji for New Zealand-s 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Fiji this Wednesday.

Victory Football Operations Manager Gary Cole said Moss was a welcomed addition to the club alongside current goalkeepers Michael Theoklitos and Mitchell Langerak.

“Glen is 25, has played eight times for New Zealand and, up until just recently, has been the number one choice in Wellington,” Cole said.

“He-s a fantastic addition to our squad.”

Cole addressed speculation that Moss- signing could pave the way for Theoklitos- departure following the Hyundai A-League 2008/09 season, confirming the club is keen to keep last season-s Goalkeeper of the Year.

“We-re hoping Michael will stay,” Cole said.

“Michael-s made no secret of the fact he-s got ambitions to play in Europe and if something comes up we obviously don-t want to leave ourselves short.

“He-s requested to put off contract negotiations until the end of the season and we just think we-re in a great position right now with Michael, Mitch and Glen.

“Our goalkeeping ranks couldn-t be better.”

Cole said that despite inclusion of new clubs Gold Coast United and North Queensland Fury next season, Victory will boast one of the Hyundai A-League-s strongest goalkeeping line-ups.

“As always, the goal each season is to try and strengthen the squad.

“That-s a challenge with two new clubs coming in because that will dilute the strength of the squads, but this particular area we-re going to have fantastic strength.”
