Hyundai A-League signing: Roar secure second Spaniard

Brisbane Roar FC is set to add a second Spaniard to the club's Hyundai A-League squad with the expected arrival of midfielder Javier Hervas Salmoral on Thursday.

The 26-year-old played in La Liga with Sevilla FC, although more recently has played on loan in the Spanish second-tier competition with clubs including CE Sabadell, Hercules CF and Cordoba CF.

Hervas is scheduled to fly into Brisbane on Wednesday morning and will undergo a medical later in the day.

He is not expected to figure in the Roar's opening match of the Hyundai A-League 2015/16 season against Western Sydney Wanderers FC at Pirtek Stadium on Thursday night (7pm kick off Qld time).

Hervas' arrival comes just a week after the Roar announced the signing of another Spanish midfielder, Miguel Angel Garcia Perez-Roldan, known on the playing field as Corona, who played six seasons in La Liga with Almeria.

Brisbane Roar Head Coach John Aloisi told a Fans Football Forum that he had extensively reviewed the Roar squad with the aim of having at least two players competing for every position.

"I am very confident the players that we have will make us very competitive this season but I would like to keep one spot open for the January transfer window," Aloisi told the forum.

The Roar now has an extra visa position open with Aloisi also announcing to the forum that Brazilian Henrique is scheduled to be awarded his Australian Citizenship at a ceremony in Brisbane on Wednesday night.
