News has filtered through that the Australian Under-23 defender, Adrian Leijer, has signed for Fulham on a three-year deal.

Sanchez swooped for the 21-year-old, who was named Young Player of the Year in the Australian A-League last year believing that his ability will enable him to succeed in the hurly-burly of the English Premiership.

Our latest capture is delighted to have been given this chance and had this to say,

‘It’s just a fantastic opportunity for me to join a club in the English Premier League.’

‘Now that I’ve got this opportunity, all I can do is to continue to work as hard as I can to make sure I make the most of it.”

‘I’ve really enjoyed playing in the A-League.”

‘My time with Melbourne Victory has helped me develop as a player and has now provided me with this outstanding opportunity.”


Interesting buy!

Let’s hope it pays off!

  • He is a very good centre back, you have got yourselves a winner with this lad. Im a Melbourne Victory fan and i can tell you hes a good all round defender – tall, good in the air, reasonably quick, an excellent tackler and not to bad technically either (can pass and has control). Responsible for a lot of clean sheets!

  • I’m sure he’ll be the unsung hero of this season iv’e seen him play and he is a fantastic defender he should be in the first team all season.
