Melbourne Heart are believed to be close to capturing Brazilian midfielder Fred it has been reported.
Heart coach John van ‘t Schip indicated that he had already signed two Brazilians, adding to current striker Alex Terra, and was on the lookout for a Dutch defender making his five foreign player spots full.
"Right now I have my four foreigners, three Brazilians and Rutger Worm," he told Dutch website voetbalprimeur. "I'm still looking for a central defender. This could well be a Dutchman.
"I try as best as possible to keep abreast of the Eredivisie on the Internet, including YouTube. I get a lot of CDs sent from players from the Netherlands and I view them all meticulously.”
After two seasons with DC, he moved onto Philadelphia Union for the 2010 season before returning to Washington at the start of the current season.
