Melbourne City signs PEC Zwolle's Bart Schenkeveld

Bart Schenkeveld made 32 appearances -- scoring one goal -- during his two years at PEC Zwolle.

Melbourne City have added a fourth international to their A-League ranks, signing Dutch defender Bart Schenkeveld.

The versatile 25-year-old moves to Australia from PEC Zwolle, managed by City's former boss John van 't Schip.

Schenkeveld said Van 't Schip's "good advice about me" helped smooth the move.

"I'm delighted to become a Melbourne City player, starting in a new league and a totally new country," he said.

"The club has major ambition and a very clear way it wants to play football. I can't wait to get started."

Schenkeveld is a bruising defender with speed, and confident in one-on-one situations.

The one-time youth international has signed a two-year deal to play with City, filling the fourth of five visa slots.

He joins Eugene Galekovic, Scott Jamieson, Iacopo La Rocca and Stefan Mauk as signings ahead of the new season.
