The 31-year-old German has spent the last two-and-a-half years at the Eredivsie side and has signed a deal with the Glory until the end of the current A-League season.

“I have heard many good things about Australian football, from my friend (Socceroos defender) Jason Davidson and his father Alan who’ve only spoken positively about the league and the growth of the sport here,” Paljic said.

“I have always looked at playing abroad and for me the A-League offers a tremendous opportunity and the challenge I thrive for.

“But most of all I am here to play football and help the club win its first championship. Perth is on a high and I want to help the team carry that momentum going forward and be part of history.”

Paljic formerly played for Bundesliga sides Hoffenheim and Kaiserlautern before moving to Polish giants Wisla Krakow.

“Dragan is a professional, played at a top level and by all accounts is a top act. He can play on the wing or in the midfield so he’s a quality player and versatile which is what we’re looking for going forward,” Glory coach Kenny Lowe said.
