Perth Glory sign flying Dutchman Guyon Fernandez

Perth Glory has signed Dutch forward Guyon Fernandez, pending a medical.

Fernandez has spent the entirety of his career in his homeland, playing for giants Feyenoord, as well as NAC Breda, PEC Zwolle, ADO Den Haag and Excelsior.

Glory coach Kenny Lowe was delighted to have secured the services of the speedy striker, who scored 47 goals in 134 appearances in the Eredivisie.

"I'm sure he will come in and inject some real quality into our final third – that's why we've signed him," Lowe said.

"I'm looking forward to seeing him link up with Diego (Castro) when he comes in. It's exciting times for everyone at the Club as we build towards what'll hopefully be a great season."

Fernandez, 29, replaces Andy Keogh as the lynchpin of the Glory strikeforce, after the Irishman departed to the UAE after one season in the West.
