Everton midfielder Tim Cahill will retire at the end of this month, with his contract with Indian Super League club Jamshedpur expiring imminently.
Cahill made 276 appearances for the Toffees between 2004 and 2012, scoring 68 goals, and has since spent time in MLS, Australia, and with former club Millwall before moving to India in August.

Sky Sports, however, say he will bring his 22-year playing career to an end at the end of March, having appeared 11 times in India.
Speaking to Optus Sport (via FOX in Australia) about his decision, the 39-year-old said:
“I’m interested in TV, going to start my A Licence and spend quality time with my family and chill out for a bit.
“It was amazing to play in four big continents. I had a great career and I’m really thankful. I’m someone that massively respects the game and I’ll take my time to learn more.
