Qatar Stars League club Al Arabi have landed Australia international defender Matthew Spiranovic.
According to the league's website, the 24-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the Doha-based club, having impressed while training with the club on Monday.
He arrives from J-League outfit Urawa Reds, for who he made just one cup appearance, ending in a red card, in the 2012 season. The former Nurnberg centre back made 25 appearances for the Reds in 2011 - 23 of them starts - but fell from favour this campaign.
"I want to thank the club and supporters from the bottom of my heart," Spiranovic told Urawa's website.
"I didn't just experience football; I experienced what it's like to be cheered on by fans with an extremely deep knowledge of the culture.
"I had a great time playing with Urawa and will never forget my experience here. I also want to thank my team-mates for their support and being able to play together with them. I wish Urawa Reds the best for the rest of the season."
Geelong-born Spiranovic has 14 Australia caps to his name, and had been linked with English Championship club Crystal Palace before his move to Qatar.
