Football Federation Australia boss David Gallop has hailed Melbourne City's signing of Socceroos all-time leading goalscorer Tim Cahill as the biggest in the A-League's history.

Cahill has signed a two-year playing deal with the club, though only the first year will be covered by the full season guest player financial component being provided by the FFA.

"It's a red letter day for the code," said Gallop, who expected the signing to be a significant factor in a new broadcasting deal and revealed there was still a "good chunk" left of the million dollars the FFA had set aside for the guest players provision.
