Glen Moss returning to Phoenix

Goalkeeper Glen Moss is returning to Wellington Phoenix on a three-year contract from troubled A-League club Gold Coast United.

Moss, 29, who played for the Phoenix in their first two seasons before moving to Melbourne Victory and then Gold Coast, has spent the latter half of this season out with a torn abductor muscle.

The Phoenix said in a statement on Wednesday night that the deal to take New Zealand international Moss back was well advanced before Gold Coast owner Clive Palmer had his A-League licence revoked.

Moss says the decision to return to Wellington was easy.

"It was hard for me to leave in the first place," Moss said.

"I'd had two great years with the Phoenix and it was just that the offer from Melbourne Victory, who had just won the league, was very enticing.

"Now I can't wait to get back. I've been in regular contact with Ricki (Herbert) and many of the players."

Moss said he was well on the way to recovery from injury and expected to be fit for New Zealand's World Cup qualifying games in June.

"I'm probably three or four weeks away but I'll be OK by then," he said.

Phoenix coach Herbert said he was delighted to get Moss back to the club.

"Mossy is a top-class keeper," Herbert said.

"He was in great form last season, and it was the same this year till he picked up that injury.

"I am looking forward to having two top-class keepers at the club."
