McKay looking for new club
Australia's Matt McKay is looking for a new club, after reportedly being released by Chinese Super League club Changchun Yatai.
The former Brisbane Roar captain could be rejoining the A-League for the next season.
McKay had more than a year to go on his contract with the Chinese side, who he joined from Busan I'Park.
But the 30-year-old’s agent Leo Karis confirmed the player's future was up for grabs. Karis said he had been approached by Changchun but was yet to hear from any of the A-League clubs.
McKay also said he was finding it hard to adapt to the different roles he plays for his club and country, after failing to find his rhythm for the Socceroos in the East Asian Cup.
He played as a left midfielder role in the two games against Korea Republic and Japan, having been used by coach Holger Osieck at left-back in the team’s World Cup qualifiers in June.
In the East Asia Cup, Osieck has gone for Michael Thwaite in the first two games.
McKay plays central midfield for his Chinese club, which has made it hard for him to settle.
He said: "I can play anywhere. It's just wherever I can help the team and my different attributes will help."
McKay added: "You just have to adapt your game each time. It's not easy because I play at my club in central midfield and coming here I play left midfield or left-back. I can do any job ... so it's hard to settle really."
Australia are 28/1 to win the 2014 World Cup.
Sydney United are 1/1 to beat Blacktown City, who are 1/1.
