Australia's second-tier NPL leagues continue to be a vital pipeline for your A-League club.
Playing regular senior football is benefitting these four players who in many instances were in and around A-League club youth set ups.
FTBL has identified these four NPL talents in Victoria who agents should be looking at for next season's A-League.
Starting with a former Victory youth talent.
Position: Centre midfielder
Club: Melbourne Knights
Melbourne Victory fans may remember this name from their youth team.
Big expectations were on him but he didn’t quite make the step up into the first team.
He’s dropped down to the NPL to find his form and we reckon this season he’s showing why he could be a great find.
Duzel is in a professional environment at Somers St, which is helping his game get back on track. Creative, aggressive and with a good physique, he’s finding his groove again with the Knights.
