Ryan Tunnicliffe has detailed his ambitions upon signing for Australian side Adelaide United on a free transfer. The 30-year-old former Manchester United midfielder - who won the club's coveted Jimmy Murphy award in 2011 after helping the academy pick up the FA Youth Cup that season - moves to the A-League outfit after a two-year spell in League One with Portsmouth.

He made two senior appearances for United. After loan spells with Peterborough, Barnsley and Ipswich Town during his promising early career for the Premier League giants, Tunnicliffe departed Old Trafford on a permanent basis midway through the 2013/2014 season.

First playing for Fulham, he later moved to Wigan (loan), Blackburn (loan), Millwall and Luton Town. ALSO READ: United negotiator trying to change club's transfer culture ALSO READ: Kane addresses transfer interest from United this summer He played 69 games for Pompey, across two seasons.

After leaving the League One outfit this summer, Tunnicliffe has now settled on his next adventure. Upon joining the A-League hopefuls, he said: "I'm absolutely over the moon to have signed for United and it poses a great challenge and change for me after playing in England all of my life. "I'll be leaning on guys like [former Wigan teammate] Zach [Clough] to help get me settled and I can't wait to play at Coopers Stadium, which is one of the best grounds in the league and comparable to England I hear. "You see more and more of the A-League over in the UK with plenty moving over all the time, so this seems like a natural fit for me and I can't wait to get started." Adelaide have yet to kick-off their campaign and Tunnicliffe will have plenty of time to get used to his teammates, not to mention new surroundings
