News - transfers
Ochoa joins Standard Liege
Mexico international goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has joined Standard Liege. The 31-year-old was a free agent after his contract with Malaga ran out at the end of the season. Ochoa played on loan at Granada last season, but the team was relegated after finishing in last place, having conceded 82 goals over the 38 games.
Ochoa moved to Ligue 1's Ajaccio in July 2011 and stayed until the team was relegated in 2014. A transfer to Malaga followed an outstanding 2014 World Cup for Ochoa, but he struggled to hold down a starting sport and was loaned to Granada for the 2016-17 season.

Vukovic completes Genk move
Socceroos goalkeeper Danny Vukovic has signed a two-year deal with Genk with the option of a further two seasons. The 32-year-old Vukovic will replace Mat Ryan at Genk, after his compatriot spent the final six months of the 2016-17 season in Belgium on loan from Valencia before signing with Brighton & Hove Albion.
The move is significant for Vukovic who has never played in Europe, despite a brief spell with Turkish club Konyaspor in 2010. Vukovic, who was last season's A-League Goalkeeper of the Year, also spent time in Japan with Vegalta Sendai in 2014.

He looks to earn a sport in Roberto Martinez's Belgium squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
