Perth Glory have clinched a deal for a current Australia international. Glory owner Tony Sage refused to name the player, but confirmed: "It's going to be a huge fillip for us."
Derby County attacker Mike Sterjovski and Colchester defender Chris Coyne have been mentioned.
Meanwhile, discussing Glory's winter signing plans, Sage told the Sunday Mail: "The list of 15 players that Mitch and Lui are seeing over there is magnificent.
"If we get a really big star, he'll be the marquee rather than the Socceroo.
"We're the only club that's got six players left to sign. Every other club has almost finished their signings."
