Palace, Middlesbrough among clubs keen on Perth Glory's Thwaite

Perth Glory defender Michael Thwaite is attracting interest from a host of clubs in England according to Sky Sports.

The 30-year old Australian international has emerged as a target for Premier League new boys Crystal Palace as well as Championship outfits Middlesbrough, Leicester City and Blackpool.

Thwaite's agent Jamie Holsgrove told Sky Sports: "Michael produced one of his best seasons for club and country and he now has three crucial games ahead for the Socceroos.

"There is firm interest in England but his focus now must be with the national team."

Thwaite has experienced European football in the past, taking in spells with Nation Bucharest in Romania and spending time in Poland with Wisla Krakow and in Norway with SK Brann.

Since 2008, the towering centre-back has been home in Australia's A-League with Melbourne Victory, the now-defunct Gold Coast United and the Glory.
