Langerak, Irvine secure moves to new clubs

Socceroos Mitch Langerak and Jackson Irvine have both sealed moves to new clubs as deadline day approaches in Europe.

Langerak has ended his seven year stint in Germany, joining La Liga side, Levante on a two-year deal, after two seasons at Bundesliga club, Stuttgart.

The 29-year-old was instrumental in his side earning promotion back to the Bundesliga last year after a season in the second tier.

However, upon promotion, he has found himself back at the No.2 keeping spot, after the club signed Ron-Robert Zieler from Leicester as the new first choice shot stopper.

Meanwhile, Irvine has signed a three-year deal with Hull City, after two years with fellow Championship side, Burton Albion.

“I couldn’t be happier and I’m just excited to be starting the next chapter of my career. It has all happened relatively quickly, but once I found out about the interest from Hull City it was an easy decision even though leaving Burton was difficult in its own way,” Irvine said.

“I just can’t wait to get started now.”
