South Melbourne FC would like to confirm that Luka Ninkovic has signed for the club ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
Luka is a powerful forward who has experience across the top tier of the National Premier League here in Victoria. He joined the club after playing for Bentleigh earlier this year, though many South fans would know him from his days at Heidelberg United where he was part of the Warriors Championship winning squad.
He adds significant depth to our attacking third and will be looking to link up with our other forwards to provide another big target and goal scoring option in the box.
Speaking to SMFC Media, Football Director Andrew Mesourouni was pleased with the signing.
“Luka is a proven goal scorer , technically balanced and strong in the air. An explosive player and a great guy , giving us additional strength up front.”
He will join us in the window and will be available for selection soon after.”
Luka will replace Danny Kim on our roster, with the midfielder departing the club also during the window.
