Australian centreback Adrian Madaschi looks set to sign with Adelaide United.

Madaschi, who is plying his trade in the lower reaches of the Italian Leagues, is originally from Perth and all his family live there.

But Adelaide United have been chasing Madaschi and look likely to get their man.

Madaschi has also featured for Australia at every National Team level from Joeys to Socceroos but has fallen off the radar in recent years.
