NEW Zealand international Chad Coombes has welcomed a potential move to Hayes & Yeading after starring in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Wycombe Wanderers.
The 26-year-old came tantalisingly close to making the New Zealand World Cup squad for South Africa, but he just missed out on the final 23 in the end and he is now hoping to launch a football career in England.
"I played in a friendly against Mexico in March and was in the 30-man World Cup squad, but I just missed out on the 23 when it was cut down,” he said. “I was disappointed with that, but that is why I have come here as I want to try and improve my game and play at a higher level. I want to try and up my standard and hopefully I can get something here.
"I would definitely consider it and I just want to get a contract as soon as possible."
Coombes even played in the Fifa World Club Cup in December for Auckland City and manager Garry Haylock (pictured) is also interested in signing his former team-mate, Jason Hayne.
Striker Hayne paid £2,000 to travel over to England and he has just until Tuesday to secure a deal before his scheduled return flight.
Another striker in the frame for a move to Hayes is Sierra Leone international Malvin Kamara, but the former Huddersfield and MK Dons marksman also has a trial with Lincoln City.
Meanwhile, Hayes are also looking to complete a deal for defender Adam Bygrave, but he is still on contract with fellow Blue Square Bet Premier club Histon.
