A-LEAGUE WINDOW SHOPPING

The A-League may only be heading into season four but already the competition is becoming known as a shop front for European talent scouts.

Ecuador international Edmundo Zura’s arrival at A-League premiers the Newcastle Jets is evidence of that.

Australian based agent Peter Kokotis brokered the deal to secure his services on loan for the coming season and says the A-League is now becoming a place for players in their prime, not for those past it.

Jim Callinan spoke with him after Edmundo’s arrival at the Jets.
