The 28-year-old player was in Australia alongside other Solomon Islands that were playing for Wolves, notably Micah Lea’alafa and Atkin Kaua. The players were succesful in trials in Australia as the Solomon Islands national team prepared for the FIFA World Cup qualifying tournament in Queensland. After reaching the final but losing to New Zealand the spot in the FIFA World Cup Continental Playoffs, Prince alongside his compatriots returned Australia and joined Wolves.

It is known Galaxy already requested the wing-back’s ITC (International Transfer Certificate) to Football Australia in order to complete the deal. The transfer window in Vanuatu is set to finish on 12th February.
