Tim Cahill Is Returning To English Football With His Former Club

In the Aussie version of Robbie Keane's rumoured return to boyhood club Wolves, Everton cult hero Tim Cahill is set for talks with Millwall as he closes in on a scarcely believable return to English football.

The 38-year-old was on the books at Melbourne City but could move back to his first English club Millwall, who currently sit 15th in the EFL Championship. Cahill is a free agent after terminating his contract with the A-League side seven weeks ago, and has been on the lookout for a new club as he strives to play in his fourth World Cup in Russia this summer.

Millwall manager Neil Harris, who was Cahill’s teammate at the club from 1998-2004, confirmed that the pair were in touch as well as  how his team could do with some additional charges:

I spoke to Timmy again, about various things to be honest. There’s still dialogue between me and Tim in terms of that, but that’s as far as it is at the moment. It’s happened where we have continuously missed a player in an attacking position. We’ve been trying to bring in players all window and it’s tough. I don’t think people really understand how difficult January is. It’s by far the most frustrating time, transfer-wise, since I’ve been in charge.

Needless to say the majority of Millwall fans were delighted with the news:

Cahill scored 56 goals in 249 appearances for the club, but the move represents a gamble for the Championship side. It's been all of twenty years since the Aussie last turned out for the London club, but if it means seeing his famous corner flag boxer celebration again, I'm all for it.
