The 36-year-old illuminated the Premier League with his goals and dazzling skills between 2004 and 2012 scoring 56 league goals for Everton before moving to the MLS to play for New York Red Bull.

After that, Australia’s record goal scorer Tim Cahill then moved to China where he represented Shanghai Shenhua and Hangzhou Greentown.

However, Cahill has now confirmed he is leaving Greentown to sign for his home town club Melbourne City FC and then join their coaching staff in two years time.

That move will see Cahill play in the country’s domestic A-League competition for the first time.

“I am incredibly excited to have signed with Melbourne City and ultimately the City Football Group. There is real ambition and purpose here, qualities that are immensely important to me,” he said in a statement.

Cahill has represented Australia in three consecutive World Cups and the Asian Cup, becoming the first Australian to score in each competition, taking his total caps for the Socceroos to 91.
