He spent time briefly with Melbourne Victory before heading back to Europe, trialling with FC Sion and later in Slovenia with NK Maribor and Bela Krajina, but his recurrent injury forced another return home. In June 2007, he signed with Adelaide United on a one-year contract, followed by a 2-year contract with the Newcastle Jets in April 2008. As of 2012[update], he was playing with Oakleigh Cannons in the Victorian Premier League.
