Perth Glory complete Hersi signing

Perth Glory have completed the signing of attacking livewire Youssouf Hersi in a deal that will see him at the A-League club for the next two seasons.

The former Dutch youth international, who remains with Western Sydney Wanderers until the end of their 2013/14 Asian Champions League campaign, has a list of big clubs next to his name including FC Twente and AEK Athens along with Dutch giants, Ajax , where he made his debut at the age of 18.
Hersi started his A-League career with the Wanderers in their inaugural season, and has appeared a total of 47 times, scoring seven goals in his first two seasons.

Touted as one of the best A-League imports in recent years, Hersi will be a key figure for the club as they seek to rebuild after a disastrous 2013/14 campaign.

Club CEO Jason Brewer said: “We are delighted to have a player of Hersi’s calibre here at Perth Glory.

“He is a great player, with a fantastic pedigree and as we rebuild for next season, his addition to the club will be the first of many quality signings we will be making in the near future.”
