Aussie former 'best talent in world football' signs for Belgian club

One of the Guardian's former '50 best talents in world football', Aussie Panos Armenakas, has signed for Belgian club KSV Roeselare.

The club announced the departures of Michael McGlinchey, Milan Duric, Tommy Oar, Jacob Melling, Jair Eduardo Britto da Silva all simultaneously in a very low-key statement on the club website.

Duric will be a huge loss given his prolific goalscoring for the Gosford club, but Melling and McGlinchey in particular will feel hard done by after their distinguished years of service for the club.

Oar is expected to join A-League club Macarthur Bulls at the start of next season.

"The club would like to thank them for their contributions throughout their time with the Central Coast Mariners," the Mariners said.

"Negotiations continue with a number of players and the club will provide further information regarding them when appropriate."
