After a season abroad in Japan, Nabbout has returned to Melbourne Victory - the place where his A-League began in 2013.
Before he left for Urawa Reds, the 26-year-old established himself as one of the stars of the A-League with the Newcastle Jets, scoring 18 goals in 46 matches for the Hunter Valley club.
Nabbout also led the line for the Socceroos at the 2014 World Cup, starting the first two matches before dislocating his shoulder and missing the final group game.
His pre-season at Melbourne Victory has been flawless with regular goals and linking up menacingly with captain Ola Toivonen.
Nabbout looks to be entering this prime of his career and there is a good chance they won't be missing Kosta Barbarouses too much.
