Released Hull City goalkeeper Tom Woodhead is joining Perth's Sorrento.

Since being released by the Tigers at the end of last season, the keeper has found it hard to find a new club.

But this trip of a lifetime could be the move that resurrects his career.

"This is too good an opportunity for me to turn down," Woodhead told the Hull Daily Mail. "Trevor (Morgan) is first-team coach for Sorrento and rang me to invite me out to play for the year.

"Sorrento are the feeder club for A-League side Perth Glory and if I can establish myself with Sorrento, there's a chance I could play for the Glory.

"I couldn't say no to this chance. I don't want to reach the end of my career and regret not going. It's for a year, but I'll see how I'm finding it after a month.

"It's a long way to go for a game of football, but hopefully it will be worth it."
