Theoklitos to leave Melbourne Victory

Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Michael Theoklitos will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of June. The 28-year old turned down a new contract offer from the Victory and is likely to pursue his career overseas.

Theoklitos was a major part of the Victory's successful 2008/09 season where they won both the Premiership and Championship; he also achieved the same in 2006/07.

"Michael is an inaugural Melbourne Victory playing squad member who has been a fantastic servant of the club over the past four years," Melbourne Victory Football Operations Manager Gary Cole said.

"He has been a vital part of our two Championship and Premiership teams and we are very appreciative of his services.

"Michael was offered a contract, which he rejected. He has ambitions to play overseas and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

"While he will be missed, we're in a fantastic position with Mitchell (Langerak) and Glen (Moss), who are both outstanding goalkeepers and prospects for 2009/10 and beyond."
