Johnny Koutroumbis signs with Scotland’s Motherwell FC


Australian defender Johnny Koutroumbis has signed a two-year deal with Scottish Premiership side Motherwell, subject to international clearance.

According to Canberra Times, Koutroumbis joins after a two-year spell at A-League Men side Perth Glory after previously playing for West Adelaide, Adelaide United, Newcastle Jets and Western Sydney Wanderers.

“There has been a lot of work to get Johnny here,” manager Stuart Kettlewell told the official Motherwell website.

“So, first of all I want to thank everyone involved as these kinds of deals are never easy.

“Johnny is a good player who has a wealth of experience in a good league. I’ve spoken with him and he is very ambitious.

“We both feel this is an excellent opportunity for him to develop and push into that next chapter of his career. He’s came to the other side of the world, which is a lot of commitment.

“He’s now got plenty time to adjust and settle before the competitive season begins.”

Koutroumbis, 26, has been capped by Australia at under-23 level.
