Jamieson's Melbourne City link after Sweden exit

Melbourne City could become defender Scott Jamieson's fifth A-League club, as he heads home after being released by Sweden's IFK Goteborg.

Central Coast Mariners are also a possible option for the pacy 28-year-old, who made 26 appearances after heading to Scandinavia 10 months ago from Western Sydney Wanderers.

Goteborg's sports director Mats Gren explained on the club's website that Jamieson had been released for "family reasons" and he "may go out on loan or sign for any club".

Indications are, assuming an A-League return is Jamieson's immediate priority, that he could become new Melbourne City coach Warren Joyce's first signing since taking charge this week.

The club are in the market for an Australian left-back and Jamieson - whose other A-League clubs include Sydney FC, Adelaide United and Perth Glory - appears to tick a number of boxes.

The rebuilding Mariners, who have made a number of impressive off-season signings, are also understood to be keen but City are in the box seat.
