Degenek, who was born in Croatia, had been plying his trade in Germany since 2012 when he first signed with Vfb Stuttgaart.

The J1 club start their campaign on Feb 25 at home to Urawa Red Diamonds. 

Meanwhile, there are reports that Caltex Socceroo keeper Maty Ryan could be on the move from Valencia in order to find more game time.

One European report claims the shot-stopper is attracting the attention of Racing Genk in Belgium. 

Belgium's league is where Ryan made his name with Club Brugge with his success prompting his big move to the Mestalla in 2015
