Born in Stoke-on-Trent in the UK, Griffiths was a Central Coast Mariners team member from 2010 until he moved to Chinese club Guangzhou R & F in 2012.

In 2014, Griffiths returned to the A-League to play for Perth Glory.

Three years later Griffiths signed a deal to become a defensive midfielder for Uzbekistan’s Pakhtakor Tashkent in the Uzbek League.

The departure attracted a $1.3m transfer fee which still stands as an A-League record.

Griffiths left the club in 2018, citing family reasons, and signed a two-year contract with Melbourne City.

Griffiths, now 34, appeared in three consecutive grand finals and played in a total of 94 matches with the side.

In July this year, Melbourne City announced Griffiths would join Mumbai City. The Northcote townhouse will be auctioned on August 20.
