Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce it has signed talented young central midfielder, Jake Brimmer, for the upcoming 2020/21 campaign.
Brimmer is a proud Melburnian who was close to joining Victory before he was signed by Liverpool back in 2014.
The Australia U17 and U20 representative spent three seasons in England before returning to play for Perth Glory in 2017.
The 22-year-old joins an exciting group of young players which has recently signed with the club, including Jay Barnett, Aaron Anderson and Birkan Kirdar.
Brimmer said he is thrilled to move home to Melbourne and play for Victory this season.
“I’m really happy to have signed with Melbourne Victory. It’s the team I grew up supporting and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to play for the club’s amazing members and fans,” Brimmer said.
“Victory played some very attractive football in the Sydney hub. After speaking with Grant I was eager to come home and be part of the team he is building this season.
“There’s plenty of hard work ahead but I’m looking forward to training alongside my new teammates and getting ready for another big season ahead.”
Head Coach Grant Brebner welcomed Brimmer home to the Victory family.
“We are very pleased Jake has signed with the club for the upcoming season,” Brebner said,
“Jake is part of an exciting group of young players who we believe have an opportunity to help our club build a bright future.
“We have been very clear with the standards, expectations and style of football we want to play, and we believe Jake has the characteristics and qualities to help us this season and beyond.
“Jake is only 22 years of age, but he has plenty of experience having played for the national team pathway, he spent three years in the Liverpool system and has also played more than 50 games in the A-League.
“We look forward to Jake sharing bringing his experience, drive and work ethic as we continue our preparations over the coming months.”
