Ricki Herbert feels it will be beneficial for Wellington Phoenix to cultivate a strong relationship with overseas clubs.
The New Zealand outfit have completed the loan signing of Fulham striker Corey Gameiro until the end of the season and Herbert suggests striking up a partnership such as this can only be a positive for both clubs involved.
"It is important to establish relationships with clubs around the world and it is exciting that we are now forming one with an English Premier League side," Herbert said.
"Having players coming this way is good for the future of the club."
20-year old Australian forward recently spent time on loan with Dutch club FC Eindhoven but will now further his development in the surrounds of the A-League.
