Smeltz to join Perth Glory
The New Zealand international came out of contract and was be free to leave United, the club he returned to from a disappointing spell with Turkish club Genclerbirligi earlier in the season.
Smeltz has joined the Western Australian club as their marquee player and his contract is expected to fetch him $1.2million over three years.
The announcement has not yet been officially made but it seems almost certain that the Glory will hold a press conference this week.
The signing is expected to put pressure on the career of Robbie Fowler who may not be needed by Perth if the Smeltz deal goes through.
