Babalj has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with Mlada Boleslav, currently home to ex-Melbourne Heart teammate Golgol Mebrahtu.

As revealed by FourFourTwo last month, Babalj had undergone a two-week trial with the Czech First League club.

The two parties agreed terms last week with Mlada Boleslav making the deal official over the weekend.

Mlada Boleslav are due to play Sparta Prague at 1am Tuesday morning (AEST), with Babalj a chance to make his debut.

Babalj is understood to be relieved to have resolved his club future, after his release from Adelaide United.

The 25-year-old was once dubbed the next Mark Viduka after emerging as a talent in the 2011/12 A-League season with nine goals for Heart.

Babalj, who has two Socceroos caps and goals to his name, endured a difficult time with Red Star Belgrade, with the Serbian club failing to pay the final part of his transfer fee, leading to his exit.

The Sarajevo-born Perth-raised striker returned to Heart before trying his luck in Europe again, with Dutch club AZ Alkmaar. He also had a loan spell at PEC Zwolle but was cursed by injuries.

Babalj suffered another long-term knee injury following his return to the A-League with Adelaide United and is looking to rebuild his stalled career.
