Rumour: Canberran off to Melbourne Victory?

Is Kaz Patafta set to sign for Victory?

Kaz Patafta is a rising star of Australian football. Currently with Benfica in Portugal, this ex-Radford College student is rumoured to be ready to sign a loan deal with Melbourne Victory.

I have no way of knowing how close this is to being a done deal. Tuesday is supposed to be the day for the announcement.

Good deal for Kaz? Yes, he would play for Victory in front of 30,000 plus crowds, Asian Champions League and maybe the Olyroos.

As history shows any player who can make a good impact in the old NSL or A-League can make it big overseas. Vinny Grella, Brett Emerton, and Jason Culina haven't done so badly have they.

Should Kaz come back for a couple of years? Why not, if he gets game time in Australia it won't do his development any harm.

What say you?
