Melbourne Victory swoop for Gallifuoco

Melbourne Victory are set to sign versatile Olyroo defender Giancarlo Gallifuoco.

The centre back, who can also play in midfield, has been in demand from A-League and European clubs.

Gallifuoco, who has played for Australia at Under-23 level, has been on trial at Bradford City and Millwall after being released by Swansea City.

He helped Swansea win the Under-21 Premier League title last season and spent time in Tottenham’s Under-21s alongside Socceroo Massimo Luongo.

Gallifuoco passed up on a move to Perth Glory and FourFourTwo understands A-League champions, Melbourne Victory, are set to bring the talented 20-year-old to AAMI Park.
