Western Sydney Wanderers leftback Scott Jamieson has officially joined Swedish club IFK Goteborg on a two-year contract with an option for a third.
Jamieson’s agent Buddy Farah confirmed the deal to FourFourTwo after Wanderers revealed the 27-year-old was leaving the club on Thursday afternoon to “pursue an overseas opportunity”.
It had previously been reported the former Bolton defender would sign a one-year contract with the option of a further season, but the long-term deal potentially secures his future until 2019.
IFK sealed the deal on the final day of the Swedish transfer window which closes on Thursday, as the Allsvenskan season runs by calendar year.
Jamieson won't be available for Friday's league clash with Falkenberg but is expected to debut in the Europa League against Azerbaijani club Qarabag next Thursday.
Goteborg were Swedish runners-up last term, meaning they will play in Europe this season. They are currently fourth in the Allsvenskan.
Farah told FourFourTwo that Jamieson deserved the move and the lure of European football was strong.
"He's worked consistently and passionately over the last few years and thoroughly deserves this new experience,” Farah said.
“He could well be playing against one of the big English clubs in the Europa League group stages in a few weeks time and that was certainly a big carrot.
“He moves to a team that has big ambitions and rich history."
IFK confirmed the signing on Thursday evening with the club's sporting director Mats Gren speaking highly of Jamieson.
“He’s strong defensively and a fast, offensive defender who is very confident on the ball,” Gren said.
The four-time Socceroo leaves Wanderers after one season at Pirtek Stadium where he made 32 appearances in all competitions and played in a Grand Final.
“This was the best fit opportunity for me to leave the Wanderers and an opportunity I have craved,” Jamieson said.
“I will embrace a new culture and club. I have enjoyed many memories and success and leave behind my heart, but will hope to return one day if the heavens align.”
