Harry Kewell is reportedly set to meet with Perth Glory coach Ian Ferguson and CEO Paul Kelly on Thursday to discuss joining the A-League club.

Kewell and Glory owner Tony Sage talked at the Melbourne Cup about a short-term guest stint with the club, with the Socceroos star still to find a new home after leaving Melbourne Victory last season for personal reasons.

The Glory have already filled their roster for the current season but Sage said he hoped Football Federation Australia would help them work something out.

"I met him yesterday. It was just a chance meeting and it was not planned and I asked him what his future was," Sage told radio station 6PR.

"He said he was looking for a club. Our list is full at the moment, so that is the only small impediment.

"But I'm sure the FFA may do something given the concessions they gave to Emile Heskey and (Alessandro) Del Piero.

"Money's not an issue. He said at this time of his career he's made a lot of money out of football and the money issue won't be a problem.

"The comment to me exactly was 'Tony I'm interested in playing football, I want to play for Australia again and the only way I'm going to do it is to play.'"

Kewell was already travelling to Western Australia for a charity golf event this weekend.
