Scott Jamieson says he is motivated to show what he can do after returning to Australia to sign for Melbourne City.

The 28-year-old left-back has agreed a four year deal, having spent last season with Swedish side IFK Goteborg.

Jamieson had previously made 182 A-League appearances for Adelaide United, Sydney FC, Perth Glory and Western Sydney Wanderers.

And he’s delighted to link up with new Melbourne City coach Warren Joyce.

"Coming back from Europe to a Club that is making a mark on Australian football is a new and exciting start for me,” Jamieson said.

“To be able to challenge myself in this world-class environment at the Academy alongside a talented playing and coaching group, makes me motivated to perform for the Club and its fans.”

Joyce, who took the helm last week at the start of pre-season, admitted he was desperate to strengthen the left hand side of Melbourne’s team.

“We’ve identified the need for a left-sided player who can fit our system and Scott not only possesses the right experience in this league, but also a strong determination and attitude that will complement the character of our squad,” the City coach said.

Jamieson will begin pre-season training next week, when he will link up with City’s other recent signing Eugene Galekovic.
