Jon McKain

At the start of the season Jon McKain was looking to come home to Brisbane. Based in Romania, he had played for the Strikers and for Frank Farina in the Socceroos.

Unfortunately, the Roar couldn't find a place for him. So he was given an opportunity for Wellington, probably by fellow Brisbane boy Karl Dodd who had also made his way back from Romania.

Jon played a key leadership role for Wellington both in defence and it the holding midfield role.

Recently, Jon said his aim was to get Wellington to the finals before deciding his next move. He still seems to hold out hopes of a return to Brisbane, although a return overseas is now also possible.

I wonder if the Roar will have a holding mid-field vacancy next year? Aggressive without aggression?
