James Troisi (born 3 July 1988 in Adelaide, South Australia) is an Australian football (soccer) midfielder. He is currently playing for Turkish club Kayserispor.


Club career

Troisi is born of an Italian father[1] and a Greek mother.[1] He signed his first professional contract with Newcastle United on 10 January 2007, keeping him at the club until June 2008.[1] He did not make a first team appearance during his time at Newcastle, although he did feature on the bench for the first team in both Premier League and UEFA Cup matches.

He was a fringe player of Newcastle's senior side for the 2007–08 Premier League season, but showed promising signs in pre-season friendlies, including getting two assists against Hartlepool United.[2]

In January 2008, Troisi had a two match trial with Dutch Eredivisie club, Roda JC. Roda wanted to sign him on a permanent basis, but negotiations broke down as Troisi was a product of Newcastle's youth development and still under 23 years of age, so Newcastle would have required a compensation fee.[3]

On 6 May 2008 it was announced that Troisi would not be offered a contract with Newcastle United after the end of the 2007/8 season.[4]

In the media his name has been mentioned for a couple of Dutch and Spanish teams, including NEC. It was stated recently a "world renowned" Spanish team is courting him.[5] He joined Gençlerbirliği S.K. at the end of August 2008 on a three year contract.[6] He made his debut for Gençlerbirliği S.K. on 14 September 2008 against Eskisehirspor K at the 19 Mayis Stadium in Ankara, coming on as a 65th minutes subtitute for Engin Baytar.

On January 24 Troisi put mid-table Kayserispor to the sword with his first career hat-trick scoring all of Genclerbirligi's goals in a 3–1 win.[7]

In July 2009, he joined Kayserispor on a four year contract.[8][9]

International career

After a successful 2006–07 season with the Newcastle reserve side, Troisi made his debut for the Australia U23 team (the "Olyroos"), on 18 April 2007 against Saudi Arabia in an Olympic qualifier. He followed up a good performance against the Saudis with a goal in the all-important clash with Iran in his hometown of Adelaide.

Troisi made his full international debut for Australia in a goalless friendly against Singapore on 22 March 2008, playing in left midfield.[10]
