Susnjar only joined Czech top flight club Mlada Boleslav in January but has been allowed to move out on loan by boss Jozef Weber, who didn't sign him.

The 22-year-old made seven appearances for Mlada Boleslav last season after his February arrival, following Australia duty at the AFC Under-23 Championship in January.

The Perth-born defender, who was capped against Norway in March, was not part of the Zilina side which defeated Nitra 2-1 on Saturday, having completed the move late last week.

"Even before I came here, I have been looking at the history of Zilina, which is really rich," Susnjar told the club website.

"It is one of the most successful clubs in the league and although it has a young team, the boys work hard in training which I like.

"Moving to Zilina is definitely a step forward for me because I can work in a club with high ambitions."

Zilina finished fourth in the Slovakian Fortuna Liga last term but are seven-time domestic champions, all in the past 20 years.

Susnjar has previously spent time playing his club football in Czechia, Romania, Lithuania and Serbia.
