Western Sydney Wanderers have confirmed the departure of Phillip Cancar, who is set to become the latest Australian to make the move to Scotland.
The Wanderers tried to keep Cancar in Western Sydney, however, the defender has opted to take up an overseas opportunity.
There was no mention of the club in question in Western Sydney’s press release, however, Scottish Premiership club Livingston announced the pre-contract signing of the 21-year-old last month.
The Livingston move is a two-year deal, with the option of a third.
“The Wanderers would like to wish Phillip all the best in the next stage of his career overseas,” the statement read.
It’s a return to Europe for Cancar, who joined the Wanderers in 2020 after two seasons abroad with Croatian outfit NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac.
Cancar made his Isuzu UTE A-League debut in 2021-22, amassing 12 appearances and scoring once as the Wanderers missed the finals for a fifth consecutive season.
He is the latest Aussie to swap Australia for Scotland’s top flight, after Socceroo sensation Kye Rowles (Hearts from Central Coast Mariners) and Lewis Miller (Hibernian from Central Coast Mariners).
