Australia's Milligan close to European move

Milligan enjoyed trials at both Manchester City and Arsenal towards the end of last season and is available on a free transfer following his exit from Sydney FC.

The youngster is now seeking to tie up his future before the start of the Olyroos' campaign in China in August and the Football Federation of Australia has granted him permission to travel to Europe to discuss personal terms with four unnamed sides.

"The interest and options I have got are flattering and I intend to make a decision sooner rather than later," Milligan told setantasports.com.

"I am confident things will get sorted in the near future enabling me to concentrate on leading Australia to success in Beijing."
