Former Everton, Norwich defender Carney eyes Newcastle Jets stay

David Carney is hoping to lay his roots in the one place after spending over a decade moving around.

The 30-year old left-back has joined A-League club Newcastle Jets until the end of the 2013/14 season and is hoping to now find a bit of constancy in a career which has taken him from Australia to England, Scotland, back to his homeland, a return to the UK, then onto Holland, Spain, Uzbekistan, the USA and back again.

"Obviously I'd like to be stable now," the Australian national team hopeful told au.fourfourtwo.com.

"I'm 30 now. I just want to be stable now, and play some games. That's what I want to do.

"[I've had] plenty of lows, but I've had a few highs too. It's football. It's something I love to do and I've travelled the world doing it so I have no regrets really.

"Just being back in Australia and training with the boys feels good. You always feel more comfortable when you're playing in your own country."

During his career, Carney has found himself at Everton, Oldham Athletic, Halifax Town, Hamilton Academical, Sydney FC, Sheffield United, Norwich City, FC Twente, Blackpool, Alcocorn, Bunyodkor and New York Red Bulls.
