Roar snares Tunisian playmaker from Victory

BRISBANE Roar has signed former Tunisian international forward Fahid Ben Khalfallah for the 2017-18 A-League season.

The championship-winning playmaker joins Brisbane after three seasons at Melbourne Victory, where he made 76 appearances, scoring 12 goals and creating 15 assists.

Roar coach John Aloisi said he believed the addition of the front man known as 'FBK' will bring a class and attacking intent to the Roar side.

"Fahid's experience and versatility will strengthen our already talented squad," Aloisi said.

"His ability to play out wide or in the middle of our attack gives us greater unpredictability and creativity that will excite our fans.

"Most importantly, though, we believe he will suit our style of play."

The French-born-and-raised winger came to Australia after a distinguished career in France, where he made 76 appearances over four seasons for Ligue 1 giants Girondins Bordeaux,.

Brisbane's new recruit said the opportunity to continue to play in the A-League with one of the most successful team's was a challenge he would relish.

"I'm very happy to sign with Brisbane. It was an easy decision," Ben Khalfallah said.

"I wanted to play for a big club with great players, and in my opinion, Brisbane is one of the biggest clubs in Australia."

Khalfallah will arrive in Brisbane for pre-season training in early July.
