Chris Ikonomidis is keeping any ambitions of returning to Europe close to his chest, as he seeks to return to the A-League with as much force as he left it.
Alongside fellow Socceroos winger Awer Mabil, Ikonomidis was one of the sole bright spots in Australia's disappointing quarter-final exit from the Asian Cup.
But the 21-year-old insists he hasn't had any offers to return to Europe since the tournament and will put a hold on any ambitions until the end of the season.
“At the moment I’m not really sure (about a transfer)," Ikonomidis said.
“I haven’t had any offers, I haven’t had any contact really with my agent so I’m just wanting to focus on my football, I find that’s better for me and to keep that stuff out of my head and maybe think about it in the off-season.”
Ikonomidis has been arguably the standout Aussie development of the 2018/19 campaign, with Glory coach Tony Popovic able to breathe new confidence into the former Lazio man in a more aggressive, forward role.
“I told my mates in the team to stay in top spot for the time I’m gone and they did just that, they’ve been doing fantastically and I’m just raring to go,” he said.
“It was fantastic [Asian Cup], for me it was a dream to play in a major tournament with the Socceroos.
“I’ve had that dream since I was a young boy so doing that over the past month has been a dream come true and a really good learning experience for me, I think I can take a lot of positive experiences away from it.”
