thumbnail Hello,

The former St Patrick's Athletic and Birmingham City midfielder has expressed a willingness to try his luck outside of England as he continues his search for a new club

Republic of Ireland international Keith Fahey has revealed that he is willing to explore his options outside of England as he continues his search for a new club.

The 30-year-old, who has been capped 16 times for the Boys in Green, was released by Birmingham this summer and has been seeking a new club since.

However, the midfielder recently underwent surgery on his hip and is currently in a period of rehabilitation, so his search has been delayed until he regains an appropriate level fitness.

"I just want to get back and play football somewhere. Anywhere," Fahey told the Irish Times. "I'm willing and open to anything. I know, I'm realistic, I have to take a massive wage cut and I'm willing to do that."

He continued: "But it's not just about England. There are other countries that I'd be happy to go and try out. I'm 30, 31 in January. I want to play abroad some day so I'll see how it goes.

"It would suit my style, hopefully. I've just got to see what I can get. We'll see what happens."

Fahey began his career as a trainee with Arsenal and Aston Villa before making a return to Ireland where he played for St Patrick's Athletic and Drogheda United.

He joined Birmingham City in 2009, where he made over 130 appearances before being released in the summer of 2013.
