From the age of 12 to 17 Mells was in the UK with Chelsea and Southampton.

The Melbourne-born midfielder, who has represented both Australia and Greece at junior international level, returned home in 2015.

He joined the Reds and helped them claim the double in the 2015/2016 season.


The 20-year-old departed Adelaide last year, after 31 appearances, to try his hand in Europe.

Now Mells is training with Dutch second division side Fortuna.
