Mebrahtu joins the club following an unsuccessful season with Sparta Prague – where he failed to score in nine matches – after two impressive years with Sparta's Czech League rivals, Mlada Boleslav.

Puskás Akadémia were promoted to the Hungarian first division after winning promotion in 2016/17. They've finished in mid-table in their first two seasons in the top flight. 

Akadèmia have struggled to score goals at the elite level, finishing both seasons with negative goal difference. 

The signing of Mebrahtu is the club taking a step forward to overturn that deficit. 

Following two successful years at Mlada Boleslav where he scored 19 goals in 47 matches, Mebrahtu has some pedigree in the European Leagues.

The forward has six appearances and three goals in Europa League qualifying with Mlada Boleslav to his name. 

This move will undoubtedly include the ambition to impress Graham Arnold and crack the Socceroos attacking stocks ahead of World Cup Qualifying. 

Other notable players to play in the Hungarian league include Wellington Phoenix forward David Williams who spent two seasons at Haladas.
