Australian striker Kerem Bulut has signed a three-year deal with Greek Super League side Iraklis, the club announced on Monday.
The 23-year-old has plied his trade for Western Sydney Wanderers in a disappointing Hyundai A-League campaign last season which saw his club finished ninth, despite having an impressive performance individually after scoring five goals in nine appearances.
Bulut, who has previously played in Turkey and Czech Republic, also performed very well during the Asian Champions League campaign but decided to resume his European stint in a bid to boost his hopes of breaking into the Socceroos squad.
“I admire the Iraklis team, its history and what it represents today,” the Sydney-born forward told the A-League’s official website.
“I am grateful and happy that I am doing what I love most as a member of a major club. I pledge to work hard with the other players to continue to move Iraklis forward.”
Despite being considered as the one of promising Australian youngsters, Bulut has been labelled as a ‘bad boy’ due to his reputation for getting into trouble off the pitch, having been charged for several bad attitude reasons.
