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."
Let's hope it pays off!
