Australian international midfielder Tim Cahill has completed his £1million move from Everton to MLS side New York Red Bulls, subject to international clearance.

The 32 year-old has welcomed the new chapter in his life, but thanked the club he has left behind.


Tim Cahill is a modern day Everton great. For the last eight years he has given everything he could for the Toffee’s cause and more. Cahill sums up Everton under boss David Moyes, tough, spirited and hard to beat.

Tim Cahill arrived on Merseyside in 2004 from Championship side Millwall for a fee of £1.5million. Other top flight teams had looked at signing the Aussie, but didn’t take the gamble on him. Signing Cahill turned out to be arguably the best signing of David Moyes managerial career.

I can’t think of many players in the Premier League that have made such an impact at a Premier League club, for such a small transfer fee. Cahill not only scored vital goals for the Blues, but also fought tooth and nail for the Everton cause. He wears his heart on his sleeve and that’s why Evertonians love him.


Cahill told Everton’s official website: “I am very happy to start a new chapter of my career with the New York Red Bulls but I also want to thank everyone at Everton, from the club to the tremendous supporters.

“It has been a privilege to be an Everton player for the past eight years and it was a very difficult decision to leave”

A new challenge awaits Cahill in the MLS. He will team-up with former-Arsenal legend Thierry Henry in New York. Tim Cahill deserves this chance to prolong his career and I’m sure he will carry on playing for a long while to come. However, he will never be forgotten at Goodison Park.

Should Tim Cahill have stayed at Everton?
