Australian and former Liverpool goalkeeper has signed with Dutch outfit Nijmegen on a six-month deal.

The Socceroo had been without a club since being released early from his one-year contract with League One side Bradford City in October. He played just three games in three months.

The 33-year-old will ply his trade outside England for the first time in 15 years, four of which were spent at Premier League giants Liverpool backing up Pepe Reina and Simon Mignolet.

“After a positive medical examination, NEC Monday signed an agreement with the Australian goalkeeper Brad Jones,” the club said in a statement.

“Jones signed a contract until June 30, 2016 and is a free transfer to NEC.”

The Western man, who also played with Middlesbrough for 10 years, had been training with Perth Glory over the summer but now joins the likes of A-League exports Tomi Juric, Rostyn Griffiths and Daniel de Silva in the Netherlands.
