Having fallen out of favour with Adelaide, midfielder Lucas Pantelis says moving to the Wellington Phoenix A League football club was a straightforward decision.

The 29-year-old Pantelis, who was born and raised in Adelaide and has played over 100 games in his six years at the club, has signed a two year deal with the Phoenix.

Despite having recovered from a knee injury Pantelis says he simply wasn't getting picked by coach Rini Coolen and has decided to move on.

Pantelis will arrive in Wellington early next month.
