Perth Glory have confirmed the signing of Youssouf Hersi from Western Sydney Wanderers ahead of the 2014-15 A-League season.

Hersi, 31, joined the Wanderers in 2012, helping them to win the Premier’s Plate in their inaugural campaign and reach two successive A-League Grand Finals. 

The Ethiopian-born Dutchman, who represented the Netherlands at Under-21 level, will be expected to become a key player at nib Stadium as Glory seek to revive their fortunes under Kenny Lowe.

“We are delighted to have a player of Hersi’s calibre here at Perth Glory,” club CEO Jason Brewer said in a statement.

“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.”
