Official: Adelaide United add second Argentine with signing of Jeronimo Morales Neumann

The diminutive forward has joined countryman Marcelo Carrusca at the Reds, pending a successful medical when he arrives at the club next week

Adelaide United have signed their second Argentine in a week with the capture of forward Jeronimo Morales Neumann, pending his medical upon arrival in Australia next week.

The 26-year-old has signed a one-year deal after leaving Argentine Primera B outfit Independiente Rivadavia, joining countryman Marcelo Carrusca - freshly signed last Friday - at the Reds for the 2012-13 A-League season.

Neumann began his career at giants River Plate before departing for stints with San Lorenzo, Estudiantes and Instituto in his homeland, as well as a brief stint at English Championship club Barnsley in the 2010-11 season.

Standing at 172cm, Neumann has not proved a prolific goalscorer over his career, and went scoreless in 13 games for Rivadavia during the 2011-12 campaign.

Nonetheless, Reds coach John Kosmina believes the Argentine can add quality to his side's attack: "Jeronimo has played over 100 senior games in Argentina with some very good clubs and has also had experience abroad," he said via club statement.

"He is a versatile forward who has a bit of pace and is a good finisher. He will add some quality to what is a very competitive and balanced squad."
