Another one! Aussie young gun joins PL club
THERE'S another Aussies on the books in the Premier League.
Perth Glory have confirmed that 16-year-old defender Riley Warland has signed for English top-tier outfit Fulham.
The young gun had been with the Glory since he was just nine, and now jets off for an 'undisclosed fee.'
Warland will spend the next three years with the Cottagers and is the latest in a series of up-and-coming stars at the A-League outfit to seal overseas moves.
"The move to Fulham represents a fantastic opportunity for Riley," said Glory football director Jacob Burns.
"And while it is sad to see a young prospect depart, he goes with our very best wishes.
"He has been with the club since the age of 9 and his progress is a testament to the hard work of every coach he has worked under within our two-star Academy here at Glory, as well as to his own hard work and dedication.
"Riley joins a lengthy list of players who have followed the clear pathway that exists within our Academy structure and gone on to earn opportunities at top overseas clubs".
At just 16, Warland has already sat on the bench in the A-League and is highly rated in Perth.
