PSV's Culina heading back to Australia

PSV Eindhoven's Australia midfielder Jason Culina has agreed a three-year contract with new A-League club Gold Coast United.

The 28-year-old will see out the remaining five months of his contract with the Eredivisie champions before ending 10 years in Holland to return to Australia.

PSV had offered Culina a new three-year deal while Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb were also believed to have been interested in his signature.

"I want to make a fresh start and I am ready for a new challenge. I am the first international who returns to Australia and I am keen to promote the national competition and raise the standard. Players have returned to Australia from Europe before, but that was usually at the end of their careers. I will be 29 when we return. That's why I was anxious to complete a three-year deal," Culina told PSV's official website.

"PSV are a great club and I felt flattered when they offered me a contract extension, but I had already made up my mind to return to Australia."
