Craig Moore makes Kavala move

Australia defender Craig Moore has signed an 18-month contract with Greek Super League side Kavala to maintain his World Cup aspirations.

The 34-year-old was released from his contract with A-League side Brisbane Roar at the end of last month after a fall-out with coach Ange Postecoglou.

And the former Rangers and Newcastle defender was seeking a loan move to a European side in order to boost his chances of making the Socceroos squad for this year's World Cup.

He had been linked with a move to St Johnstone in Scotland, but has instead opted to join former Australia goalkeeper Zeljko Kalac in Greece.

Kavala are currently seventh in the Greek top flight after only being promoted at the start of the season and also boast two other Australians in youngster Robert Stambolziev, who is on loan from Panathinaikos, and Paul Giannou, who was born in Greece but grew up in Melbourne.

Moore started all four of Australia's matches at the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany and won his 47th cap in Wednesday's Asian Cup qualifier against Kuwait.
