Gold Coast United have agreed terms with Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Glen Moss.
New Zealand international Moss will ink a two-year deal and begin training with his new teammates before the start of the new campaign on 8 August.
The 27-year-old ‘keeper was raised on the Gold Coast and holds an Australian passport and is a direct replacement for outgoing shot-stopper Jess Vanstrattan.
United manager Miron Bleiberg praised Melbourne Victory for their handling of the negotiations and swift attention to Gold Coast’s enquiry about the player’s availability.
“I must thank Melbourne Victory for their generosity in allowing Glen to speak with us and ultimately move to Gold Coast United,” Bleiberg said.
“It all happened very quickly and for Glen it will be like coming home. He is signing as our number one goalkeeper and is proven at A-League level. He is agile and reliable which is what you want in a goalkeeper.
“Glen has been in the league for some time and is very solid; we’re delighted that we have been able to sign him so quickly and I’m very confident that it will be a move that suits Glen Moss and Gold Coast United."
