Melbourne Victory have signed Mauritius international Jonathan Bru to a two-year-deal.

The defensive midfielder, who most recently plied his trade with Portuguese club Moreirense, will join up with his new team-mates in early July and stay on with the club until the completion of the 2013/2014 Hyundai A-League season.

Bru, who has won nine caps for Mauritius and also represented France as a junior, is looking forward to moving to Australia and fitting in at his new club.

“I’m really excited to be joining Melbourne Victory, a club that has had great success and I hear their fans are amazing too, so I can’t wait,” Bru said.

“It was a big decision to move to the other side of the world, but Australian football is certainly on the up and the opportunity of a new challenge was too good to refuse.”

New Victory coach Ange Postecoglou believes the 27-year-old will fit in well at the club.

“I made it a priority to secure an experienced, defence-minded midfielder and Jonathan looks to be the ideal fit for our squad, especially considering the array of attacking options we have,” he said.

“To have represented France at five different age levels speaks volumes about his ability, and I’m confident he will provide plenty of quality to Melbourne Victory.”

Bru is Victory’s fourth new signing, with Spase Dilevski, Sam Gallagher and Adama Traore having already joined the club in recent months.
