Ex-Leeds, Liverpool winger Kewell still on hunt for new club

Harry Kewell insists he is still on the lookout for a new club after finding himself in the football wilderness for almost 12 months.

The 34-year old former Leeds United, Liverpool and Galatasaray winger departed Melbourne Victory at the end of last season to return to England but he has been unable to find a new home.

Kewell has been linked with a number of A-League clubs - most recently with Newcastle Jets - and he suggests he still has a few good years left in him, just like Sydney FC star Alessandro Del Piero.

"He's a good example of someone who is still competitive and he's, what, 38 or 39?," Kewell said of Del Piero.

"Football has changed, I think. It used to be that you would start considering retirement after 30 but guys now are playing well on into their thirties.

"Obviously to be considered for the Socceroos again I need to get a club. I would move back to Australia again, definitely.

"I would consider any offer. I'm open to all suggestions. I feel like I still have a few good seasons left. But whatever the decision is it has to be the right one for me and my family."
