Fowler in talks to move to Sydney FC

Former England international Robbie Fowler arrived in Australia on Thursday to discuss a possible move to Sydney FC.

Fowler, 32, is reportedly being courted by several clubs in Britain after being released by Liverpool but he is also considering a move to Australia.

According to Australian media reports, he will spend the weekend in Sydney meeting with the club and inspecting its facilities before making a decision.

Sydney FC won the inaugural Australian A-League in 2005-06 after snaring the signature of former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke as its "marquee."

Yorke moved back to England with Sunderland last year and Sydney has not yet replaced him.
