Melbourne Victory's Kewell not about to jump ship to Western Sydney

Melbourne Victory ace Harry Kewell says he is not quite ready to return home to Western Sydney.

The 33-year old Socceroos winger was born in Smithfield, west of the city, but admits that he is quite content to remain in Melbourne rather than rush back to play with the new A-League franchise in his home area.

"It would be tough," Kewell told Fox Sports FC when asked if he would consider a switch to the A-League's newest club.

"I was born and bred there (western Sydney) and it's always nice to eventually go home.

"But I have to say, I do love Melbourne. Melbourne has accepted me as part of their society and part of their family. Even my kids actually said to me, 'We're going to miss this place'.

"That means a lot for my kids because they love their home."

But Kewell did indicate that he is yet to sign a new contract with the Victory as he is looking to see what happens during the off-season.

"There's a lot of things that need to be done. I still need to know what exactly is happening at Melbourne," he added.

"I need to know who they are appointing, what players are going, what players are coming in ... we don't know nothing yet.

"There's a lot of things that Melbourne need to sort out but if they get it right, I'm more than happy to come back because I do enjoy playing for Melbourne."
