Socceroos World Cup back up keeper Brad Jones has made a surprise move to Saudi side Al Nassr after successful back to back seasons with Dutch club Feyenoord.
Jones, 36, resurrected his international career by playing 63 games for the 2016/17 Eredivisie champions and helping the side to claim the KNVB Cup last season.
The run of form saw his return to the Socceroos under caretaker coach Bert van Marwijk and a trip to Russia 2018 where he watched from the bench.
It was a remarkable turnaround for Jones after apparently struggling for gametime in a 57 game stint over a decade for Middlesbrough while in his 20s.

A long series of loan spells followed, before a lengthy spell as back up keeper for Liverpool which saw him only get 11 games in five years.
He switched to Bradford City but continued to struggle for a game until he made the move to the Netherlands in January 2016.
He revived his career first with a six month deal at NEC then went to rivals Feyenoord later that year and signed a new two year extension in May 2017.
Today though Riyadh side Al Nassr unveiled Jones as their new keeper for the forthcoming season, on a two year deal.
The club is currently in pre-season training in Switzerland.
