The Australian is the second player from Down Under to sign the Red Lizards.
Pune FC have pulled off something of a transfer coup after signing James Meyer from Brisbane Roar.
The 27-year-old was released from the Suncorp Stadium after three-years with the club and becomes the second Australian to sign for the Red Lizards in recent years, completing their quota of foreign players for the upcoming 2013/14 I-League season.
Meyer joins Douhou Pierre (Ivory Coast), Raul Fabiani (Spain) and Calum Angus (England) as the overseas contingent at the Balewadi Sports Complex and brings with him a wealth of championship winning experience having twice triumphed in the A-League with Brisbane.
After the deal was finalised on Monday the Sydney-born striker revealed his excitement of the challenge that lies ahead in India.
“I am up for it. First and foremost I would like to help the team be successful. Personal goals are secondary, but I would like to score as many goals as possible,” he told NDTV.
“The I-League is a growing league and quality foreigners are needed. Hopefully, I can bring something to Indian football and teach the local kids what I know.”
Pune FC’s Head Operations, Chirag Tanna also revealed the club’s delight at having landed a player of Meyer’s calibre.
“We are very happy to have signed James. He is a versatile player who has invaluable experience; not only has he played in the A-League but also the Asian Champions League. I would like to wish him the very best of luck for the season ahead,” Chirag said.
