Perth Glory have completed the signing of Socceroos midfielder Mustafa Amini who has penned a three-year deal with the club.

It has been a huge week for Glory with a host of new players arriving, while it has also been confirmed that captain Brandon O’Neill is leaving the club.

Amini has had a glittering career since breaking on to the scene with the Central Coast Mariners, where he won a premiership in 2012.

The 29-year-old went on to play in Germany, Denmark and Greece before returning to the A-League with Sydney FC last season.
