Club search for Jedinak


Australia midfielder Mile Jedinak’s two-year spell in Turkey could be over as he confirmed parting company from Genclerbirligi.

Speaking after another robust display for his country, Jedinak told The World Game he sees his future beyond the Turkish Super Lig, after securing his release with a year still to run in his deal.

'I am in the process of sorting out a new club and I’m not sure what’s going to happen there," he said.

'I think I’ve done well in Turkey (with Genclerbirligi and also on loan at Antalyaspor) and now I just want to look elsewhere and see what is out there club wise."

Jedinak, who scored nine goals in 64 appearances in Turkey, was coy about his options but is keen to test himself in Spain, Italy, Germany, Netherlands or England.

'I’d love to play in any of those leagues," said the former Central Coast Mariners ace.

'I’m just waiting to see what options are open to me. I’m hoping things will be sorted out within six weeks at the very longest and maybe even two if things happen quickly.

'There are couple of things that are being worked on and I have just had to be patient."

Jedinak, who had a great 2011 Asian Cup campaign, is keen to build on his year of living famously.

'It’s been a good year for me and I don’t want to let any opportunities go by. If I have got noticed that’s great for me," the 26-year-old said.

'I’m pretty relaxed about the future and looking forward to a new challenge."

Typically domineering alongside central midfield partner Carl Valeri in the 0-0 draw against Serbia at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night, Jedinak said it would be presumptuous to assume that the combination is now the preferred option for coach Holger Osieck ahead of the first of Australia's 2014 World Cup qualifiers in September.

'I think we have a good understanding and compliment each other but we know we can't rest on that and we have to keep pushing each other," he said.

'There are no guarantees for anyone."
