Robbie Fowler is set to give Perth Glory an answer on whether he will join the Australian side by the end of the week.

Glory owner Tony Stokes held talks with Fowler last week on a recent business visit to England about leaving his current side North Queensland Fury, who can no longer afford to pay his wages after the club fell into financial difficulties.

After an announcement earlier in the week by the FFA (Football Federation Australia) that all A-League teams can now have two marquee players (players that don’t count towards the salary cap), Perth now seem to be in a position to match his current Fury contract of $750,000 AUD (approx. £450,000) a season.

Every staff member at the club has had to have their contract renegotiated as a result of this, triggering a mini exodus from the club. The Fury couldn’t agree to match Fowler’s previous contract value of a reported $750,000 AUD (approx. £450,000)  per year, opening the door for other clubs to acquire him.
