Club Statement regarding Andy Keogh

Perth Glory FC is aware of recent media reports and speculation in relation to striker Andy Keogh and would like to clarify a few points.

The club can confirm it is in the process of terminating the 29-year old’s contract.

The Irishman had a one year deal remaining (with a one year option) and was expected to return to training yesterday, after being granted extended leave.

Upon his return to Perth late last week, Keogh received an offer from an overseas club- which Perth Glory could not compete with.

Perth Glory exhausted every avenue to resolve certain terms and conditions relating to Keogh's contract from last year and offered him a new and transparent deal that did not breach the salary cap. 

After several talks with Keogh and his management the club decided not to stand in his way, subject to Perth Glory being compensated.

The club would like to assure its members and fans that it is in talks with a number of strikers and hopes to make an announcement within the coming weeks.
