The 16-year-old youth international will call Craven Cottage home after being snapped up for an undisclosed fee.

Football West announced the move in June but the A-League outfit has only now gone public with the deal.

Warland joined the WA outfit's Development Centre in 2011 and progressed through Glory's NPL Academy before making the bench in the A-League.

Perth's Football Director Jacob Burns said the move represented a "fantastic opportunity" for the young defender.


"While it is sad to see a young prospect depart, he goes with our very best wishes," Burns said.

"He has been with the club since the age of nine and his progress is a testament to the hard work of every coach he has worked under within our two-star Academy here at Glory, as well as to his own hard work and dedication.

"Riley joins a lengthy list of players who have followed the clear pathway that exists within our Academy structure and gone on to earn opportunities at top overseas clubs".
