The Brisbane Roar have completed a major coup with the signing of homesick Australian winger, Tommy Oar. The contract is believed to extend from the remainder of this season and two more seasons.

 While he won’t be chosen for selection in the big clash against Western Sydney on Friday night, Oar will look to quickly establish himself in a side firmly in championship contention.  24 year old Oar endured an up and down spell at top Dutch side, FC Utrecht for whom he spent five seasons from 2010.

 Oar gained recognition in 2008 when he debuted for Brisbane Roar where he impressed as a teenager over two seasons, scoring 2 goals in 23 games.  Oar made quite a mark on the Utrecht, with his brilliant displays demonstrating his immense potential with 4 goals and 22 assists to his name in 101 appearances. An unhappy spell at Ipswich Town in England’s Championship followed this season before declaring his intent to return home.

 Oar, who was part of the 2014 World Cup and 2015 Asian Cup squads for the Australian national team would be hoping that the return to his boyhood club will allow for his form to return and regain prominence within Ange Postecoglou’s Socceroos plans. The contract’s worth is undisclosed at this stage.
