Melbourne Heart have announced the signing of a trio of Qantas Young Socceroos players.
Heart's head coach John van 't Schip said it was important to include emerging talent in a new squad as it helps develop both their game and provides a good base for the future for the club.
"Developing talent for the future is an important responsibility of any football club. I really enjoy working with young players and I believe the signing of these youngsters is proof of our commitment to invest in Australia's youth," he said.
"They have all shown an immense amount of potential in the National Youth League and for the Qantas Young Socceroos, and I believe they have the perfect opportunity to build on their development."
