Brisbane Roar have confirmed the signing of talented youngster Julius Davies.
Davies left rival A-League club Melbourne Victory earlier on Wednesday, with Roar snapping up the 18-year-old almost immediately.
The attacking midfielder put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year deal and will stay with the Roar until the end of the 2014/2015 A-League season.
Roar coach Mike Mulvey was delighted to acquire the services of Davies.
“He’s an exciting young prospect, quick, creative and I’m sure the Brisbane Roar fans will enjoy seeing him play,” Mulvey said.
“He can play in any of the wide positions but we’ll see at training where he fits best within our system.
“He’s someone I’m sure the other players will enjoy having around and one I think that can terrorise the opposition on the pitch.”
Davies had been with the Victory since the start of 2012, but had only managed two appearances at the club.
The news comes one day after the Roar signed Socceroo Jade North.
