The former Everton and Millwall striker is looking for competitive game after guiding his country to 2018 World Cup qualification and is in talks with a couple of English clubs to seal his return

Australia's leading goalscorer in International football - Tim Cahill is aiming for a return to English football in search of more game time in a bid for his selection to Australian world cup squad.

While Cahill is in talks with his former club Millwall, according to some reports fellow championship club Nottingham Forest too are interested in signing the forward. The 38-year old was last seen playing for Melbourne City but left the club last month after not getting enough game time, in a bid for more game time at club level to boost his chances to get selected for the Australian squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

While the prolific striker was struggling for goals in the early part of Australia's 2018 World Cup qualification run, his brace against Syria in the second leg of the fourth round qualifiers proved to be instrumental as Australia ended Syria's dream run. Despite the result, Cahill believes he needs regular game time to keep himself ready and available for the 2018 World Cup.

In 1998, Cahill began his professional football career in England with the then Football League second division side Milwall and played a key role in their surprise run to the FA Cup final in the year 2004, where they lost to Manchester United. He also won the League One title and played in two play-off finals in his six-year spell at the south London club. He was eventually sold off to Everton for a £1.5 million transfer fee, where he spent another eight years before making his return to homeland Australia in 2012.

Cahill is believed to have flown to England to finalize his next move with a high chance of a sensational Millwall return.
