New York Red Bulls and Australia star Tim Cahill could be moving to one of two Premier League clubs, according to reports from The Press Association.
Sunderland, newly promoted QPR and other clubs on the European continent are reportedly interested in signing the former Everton star on a short term move. Rumors of Sunderland wishing to sign the veteran Australian sparked at the beginning of 2013, in the form of a loan move during the MLS off season, but the deal fell through – though other reports suggest a return to this target is unlikely for Gus Poyet and his Black Cats.
QPR, on the other hand, have a record of signing players with top level experience at the twilight of their careers, and Cahill certainly fits this mould.
Cahill, 34, has spent two years plying his trade in MLS with New York Red Bulls, but an emphatic World Cup performance for the Socceroos, including a wonderful strike against the Dutch that was unlucky to lose out on goal of the tournament, has sparked interest in the Australian hit man.
Certainly, Tim Cahill has used Brazil to prove that he can still perform at the top level. Despite his age, it seems that some think he would be a useful addition to many squads across the top leagues of European soccer.
