Tommy Oar free to make next move after Cypriot separation


Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) has revealed Tommy Oar has terminated his contract with Cypriot side APOEL Nicosia by mutual consent on Friday. 

Twenty-six-year-old Oar, who moved to APOEL from Brisbane Roar last year, has made 19 appearances for the club since then.

But since, he has struggled to break into their first team plans and has now separated himself from the club.

“The PFA’s legal department has provided advice to Tommy over the past two months,” PFA Chief Executive John Didulica said.

“Tommy has terminated his contract for just cause in accordance with FIFA regulations and the longstanding jurisprudence of the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

“Tommy is now a free agent and permitted to sign with a new club.”

APOEL qualified for the Champions League group stage last year, but Oar was left out of their squad.

In their group, APOEL faced giants Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund.

In an interview with The World Game, Oar described his disappointment at being left out of the squad.

According to The Australian journalist Ray Gatt, Oar’s next move could be back to Australia and the A-League, where he has made a combined 53 senior appearances for Brisbane Roar.

Gatt reports Oar is in line to join Mike Mulvey’s Central Coast Mariners revolution.

Central Coast have also been linked with Scotsman Ross McCormack in the UK press.
