Transfer news: Roar flyer signs with German club


Brisbane Roar have confirmed that attacker Brandon Borrello will leave the club after being sold to German Bundesliga 2 side FC Kaiserslautern.

The transfer was confirmed on Friday night after he signed a contract with the Red Devils until June 30, 2020.

The 21-year-old winger made his Roar debut in the Hyundai A-League during the 2013/14 season and went on to play 75 games in Orange, scoring 13 goals.

Head Coach John Aloisi said Borrello’s transfer proves the Roar culture and style of play can produce quality young footballers.

“It is a fantastic opportunity for Brandon, and he goes with our blessing,” Aloisi said.

“We would like to wish him the best of luck in the future, and I know all Brisbane supporters will follow his progress with great interest over the coming seasons.”

Borrello emerged as one of the Roar’s most potent attackers this season, notching four goals and three assists in the Hyundai A-League. 

He also burst onto the Asian scene in late January, putting four goals past Global FC in the Roar’s first AFC Champions League 2017 qualifier.
