No deal put forward for ex-Liverpool, Leeds winger Kewell

Harry Kewell's agent has claimed that no Australian club has put forward a deal for his client.

The former Liverpool, Leeds United and Galatasaray winger continues to be linked with a move back to his homeland, in particular Melbourne Victory, but Bernie Mandic says that with all the speculation, he is still yet to see a formal offer from anyone.

"To be quite frank we still haven't seen a contract from any Australian club because the deal is rather unique in what Harry has proposed and basically he doesn't want any financial guarantees up front if he comes back to Australia," Mandic told SEN Radio.

Mandic stressed that Kewell is targeting a different sort of contract if he comes to the A-League with no upfront money to be paid to him but rather a percentage of any new revenue generated by the club he signs with.

"I don't think anybody expected it and people were almost sheepish in their approach saying 'is it true?'," he added.

"Well yes, it's true, he's prepared to come back on the basis that there is no financial guarantees.

"If the club doesn't do any better than it's doing now then Harry gets nothing. There is no base payment. Nothing at all. There is no set figure. It's an infinite piece of string."
