Former Norwich midfielder Wes Hoolahan is set for a move to the Australian A-League.

Hoolahan, who also played for Aston Villa during his long career in England, is joining Newcastle Jets.

The 37-year-old had been on the hunt for a new team after being let go by West Bromwich Albion.

Per the Irish Sun, he has agreed a deal that will see him sign permanently with the Jets and their boss Ernie Merrick.

It is the first time that Hoolahan will play outside the UK or Ireland.

He only played six games for West Brom last term.
