The A-League's top-10 transfers this season
10. Richard Garcia
Melbourne Heart from unattached [last club Hull City]
An A-League club securing the services of a Socceroo, current or former, has always been big news on the domestic scene. But Heart's signing of Richard Garcia in August was surprisingly low-key. This was undoubtedly because speculation broke out just days later that Sydney FC were about to sign Alessandro Del Piero. But Garcia's impact on the red and white half of Melbourne has been anything but low-key. His all-action efforts in a variety of positions this season have been pivotal, especially in making up for the form and injury concerns of Fred. Garcia rates second at the club in shots attempted  and fouls committed , which is a testament to his influence all over the pitch.
