Carl Valeri on the move?

It's just a rumour.....but don't be surprised to see Socceroo Carl Valeri on the move at the end of the season.

Serie A clubs were rumoured to be circling during the January break but nothing happened.

Valeri is Captain of Italian Serie B side Grosseto and looks certain to achieve the clubs target of staying in Serie B at their historic first attempt.

Valeri, has one more year of his contract to go, but with his performances for the Socceroos increasing, few expect him to be at Grosseto next year.

Seeing Ruben Zadkovich move to Derby County made me wonder would Valeri be moving to England.

Valeri, who loves living in Italy, is determined to move to a club that is best for him. That means where he gets to play.

Australia would certainly benefit if Valeri move to a Serie A club and holds down a regular spot.

Good news for the 2010 World Cup side if it comes off.

Aussie Coach Pim Verbeek pops into Grosseto this week aiming to secure Valeri's release for the Ghana game.

But with Grosseto still having two games to go around that time it may not be as easy as Pim would like, particularly if Grosseto slump towards the relegation play-off zone over the next few weeks.
