Fulham’s Leijer signs with Melbourne Victory

Melbourne Victory have reportedly re-signed defender Adrian Leijer from Fulham.

A source close to the club revealed that the 23-year old has boarded a flight to Australia and the club are keen to rush him into the team for Saturday’s night away clash against North Queensland Fury.

It is unclear whether or not the deal is a permanent one.

Leijer was a member of the Victory’s 2006/07 championship-winning team and was named the A-League Young Player of the Year in the same season.
