Adelaide United have announced defender Antony Golec is on his way to China to undergo a medical on the premise of a prospective move to Chinese Super League club Liaoning Whowin.
Golec expressed his interest in trying his luck abroad and the club was willing to approve the request to allow him to travel to China.
“There was an expression of interest from a Chinese club for Antony-s services and he told us it is an opportunity he would like to explore,” Adelaide United General Manager - Football Operations, Michael Petrillo said.
“In the unlikely event that the medical doesn't work out then the door is open for him to return to Adelaide.”
“We can understand it has been a tough season for Antony as he-s found it hard to break into the first team, but he goes with our best wishes and hopefully things work out for him over there.”
Upon his departure, Golec conveyed his gratitude to the club.
“It was a difficult decision leaving the club I-ve been at for three years but I leave knowing that this club-s door is always open,” Golec said.
“I-d like to thank the fans for all of their support throughout my time in Adelaide, I have met a lot of great people and am grateful for the opportunity the club has given me.”
“Now I-m ready for what is an exciting new chapter for me, I-ve always had ambitions to play abroad and I feel that this is the right time for me to go.”
Golec has made 28 appearances and scored two goals in all competitions for the Reds since 2011.
