Ben Halloran joins Heidenheim

The pacey wide player, who has struggled to feature for the national team in the last 12 months, has changed clubs in Germany's second tier

Socceroos forward Ben Halloran has found a new home in Germany, signing with 2. Bundesliga club Heidenheim.

After two seasons with fellow second-tier side Fortuna Dusseldorf, the 23-year-old has made the switch, committing to a three-year deal.

"We are delighted that this transfer has been concluded with Ben Halloran," Heidenheim chief executive Holger Sanwald told the club's website.

"We have now committed to another attacking midfielder."

Halloran made 37 appearances for Fortuna Dusseldorf, also a former club of fellow Socceroos attacker Robbie Kruse, scoring eight goals.

But he spent most of the last campaign coming off the bench.

The ex-Brisbane Roar attacker will hope the move can kick-start his career at both club and international level.

After making a substitute appearance against Chile at last year's FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Halloran has since struggled to break into Ange Postecoglou's squad.

Heidenheim finished eighth in the 2. Bundesliga last season, two places higher than Dusseldorf.
