Tim Cahill went to England to make his football dream come true. His son, Kyah, started there too, but will continue his own journey in Spain.
Much like his father, who spent over a decade in Europe playing first for Millwall and then Everton, Kyah is look to establish a path to a professional career abroad.
Cahill confirmed Kyah, who had spent time at Macclesfield Town, had signed for the Under-18s academy at Leganes, a second-division outfit that was relegated from La Liga last season.
“Congratulations my man @KyahTimCahill signing for the under 18s academy @CDLeganes,” Cahill tweeted.
“So proud of my son for always doing the small things right and working tirelessly to understand the dedication to get to where he is today.”
Kyah, 17, confirmed the news on his Instagram: “Dream come true. Very emotional but happy day to sign an academy u/18s contract @cdleganes … now time to prove myself.”
Cahill’s 15-year-old son, Shae, is in the youth set-up at Everton.
