That magical word ‘game-time’ is all important when it comes to Socceroos selection these days and the January transfer window brings opportunity for those currently out of favour.
Mat Ryan (Valencia)
The Socceroos number one has been public about his need to move in January, having grown frustrated with his lack of opportunities at the Mestalla.
Ryan has played just twice for Valencia this term, both early in the season. Cesare Prandelli’s exit in late December leaves some ambiguity about Ryan’s position in the side, but he’s been third choice behind Diego Alves and Jaume Domenech for too long, meaning he’ll be seeking a switch.
