Melbourne Heart secures services of Brazilian striker Alex Terra

New A-League club Melbourne Heart has secured the services of Brazilian striker Alex Barbosa de Azevedo Terra.

The 27-year old has signed a multi-year deal with the Heart, becoming their second foreign signing, following Dutch midfielder Rutger Worm to the club.

Alex Terra is a former Fluminese and Nacional player and is 'a versatile attacker who can lead the line, play out wide or as a shadow striker'.

Heart coach John van 't Schip was delighted to announce the signing of a player who will help create some diversity at the new club.

"I think it is important for Melbourne Heart FC to have a mix of different sorts of players - different nationalities, different qualities, different ages - but players who all want to play good football and win," he said.

"The club is fortunate to have recruited a South American player like Alex Terra, of such quality and of a good age, who is keen to play in Melbourne.

"He has a great first touch, great pace and an eye for goal, while most importantly, he is extremely versatile and capable of playing anywhere across the attacking line."
