Osama Malik is on a shortlist for the North Queensland Fury after producing brilliant performances in the South Australian Super League.

The teenager is a former Adelaide United youth team player but is currently playing with Galaxy in the SASL and despite not receiving any offers from the Reds, it seems as though the Fury are interested.

“I'm aiming for an A-League contract and I'm grateful Fury has given me the opportunity," Malik said.

"Adelaide talked to me a few months ago and Aurelio Vidmar said he wasn't sure if he had enough room in the budget for me.

"I've got to take my chances when they come."
