Socceroo’s midfielder James Jeggo is setting off to Greece to join the Superleague with Aris Thessaloniki FC.

On Monday Aris FC announced the 28-year-old had signed a 2-year contract with their team on Twitter.

Jeggo will be leaving Bundesliga’s Austria Wien FC after two seasons and 33 appearances across both seasons and had previously played for A-Leagues Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United.

Aris will be welcoming him ahead of the 2020/21 Greek Super League season which is due to commence on 12 September.

Jeggo’s agent Buddy Farah told NewsCorp that this was the best time for a change after five years in Austria (having also played for Sturm Graz).

“There were a number of other opportunities in Portugal and England that we were considering, but when Aris came to the table and sold us the project it was really a no-brainer at this time of his career,” he said.

Jeggo thanked his Austrian team in an Instagram post.

“I was lucky enough to meet some wonderful people and want to thank my teammates, the coaches, all the support staff and the fans,” Jeggo said.
