Defender Heffernan joins Perth Glory
Socceroo defender Dean Heffernan has joined Perth Glory after being released by Melbourne Heart.
Heffernan, 30, who played for Australia at last year's FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa, will join his new teammates for pre-season training in August after he completes a short-term loan deal with Chinese club Liaoning Whowin.
"Dean has a great pedigree," Glory coach Ian Ferguson said. "He's played for the Socceroos, played in two A-League grand finals and also had two stints overseas in Germany (Nuremburg) and England (Huddersfield Town)."
