Dino Djulbic is set to join Gold Coast United in the next two days.

The former Perth Glory defender has recently been playing with German 2. Bundesliga club Rot Weiss Ahlen but left at the end of December and is almost certain to sign with Gold Coast after joining them for training yesterday.

The 26-year old said he was immediately made welcome at the club and was looking forward to continuing his career in the A-League.

"I haven't slept in the last 48 hours but I feel alright, the boys have made me feel welcome which was the important thing and so have the coaching staff," Djulbic said.

“I had a frustrating time in Europe with injuries and I thought it was the right time to come back to Australia and play again.

"I feel welcome in Australia, it's a home for me and there is no language barrier so it's a lot easier to fit in. I think it's a great club and I want to play for a championship."
