New A-League club Melbourne Heart have officially announced the signing of defender Michael Beauchamp.
The 29-year old Australia international has joined the Heart from UAE club Al-Jazira after spending the previous few seasons in Germany with Nuremberg and in Denmark with Aalborg.
"Coming to Melbourne is a great opportunity for me to get playing regularly again, and I know a lot of the boys and the coaching staff and have only heard good things about the structure of the club," Beauchamp said.
"I didn't really look into it (remaining overseas). I felt this was the right move for me."
