Australian transfer news & rumours: Young Aussie trades Bundesliga for Belgium as Melbourne City sign 'Italian'

Football and rumours go hand in hand and we've got you covered with all the news and whispers swirling around this week in Australia.

Australian defender George Timotheou has signed for Belgium Pro-League outfit SV Zulte Waragem on a two-year deal just a few months after making his Bundesliga debut with Schalke.

The 21-year-old, who mainly played for the German club's U23's side, has made the move to Belgium with a clear eye on playing more senior football.

A former Sydney FC youth player, Timotheou was playing for NPL side Sydney Olympic just one year ago but now looks well positioned to carve out a career in Europe.
