In Australia’s top league, the Football Federation Australia introduced a new rule saying a full-season guest player spot will be made available to all A-League clubs above the two marquee slots in a club’s 23-man squad.

And Essien’s application has been successful just months after the FFA blocked Italy international Alessandro Diamanti’s switch to Melbourne Victory.
