Brisbane Roar FC and FC Utrecht have agreed to terms on a one-year loan deal that will see Socceroo Adam Sarota re-join the Queensland club for the Hyundai A-League 2014/15 campaign.
Sarota began his professional career with Brisbane Roar, first showing outstanding form in the Foxtel National Youth League and named player of the competition in 2008/09 before signing a senior contract with the club ahead of the 2009/10 season.
In April 2010, alongside Tommy Oar and Michael Zullo, Sarota made a high profile move to FC Utrecht in the Dutch Eredivisie where the Cairns-born midfielder has excelled since.
Head Coach Mike Mulvey was excited to welcome Sarota back to Queensland, especially ahead of a season that includes defending the Hyundai A-League Premiership and Championship as well as the Westfield FFA Cup and AFC Champions League.
“With the challenges in front of us this season, it is very important we have a squad with depth across all positions,” Mulvey said.
“We are very pleased to have Adam on board and we are looking forward to welcoming him back to the club this coming week.”
The 25-year-old has been capped three times by Australia and was named in Ange Postecoglou’s 30-man preliminary for this year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
“Adam is a Queenslander and more importantly, he’s a great person and a quality player who we’re certain will fit right back into our playing group," Mulvey said.
Sarota will arrive in Brisbane mid-next week and will join his new teammates at training following the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 16 match away to Adelaide United.
