His NPL form led to an A-League debut against Wellington Phoenix earlier this season.

Dehmie's parents are from Liberia but he was born in the Ivory Coast, and then came to Australia as a refugee. He says becoming a professional footballer has been his dream, ever since he arrived.

"I'm over the moon," Dehmie told the club after signing his scholarship deal.

"It's been my dream since I came to Australia to become a professional. This is a step forward in that dream.

"When I came into the Brisbane Roar Academy - being in that environment, having that pathway - is when I knew could keep moving up the ladder with hard work and dedication.

"I want to say a big thank you to the entire Brisbane Roar coaching staff and my family and friends for their support. I wouldn't be here without them. And I thank everyone who has been involved in this journey with me, helping me to grow.

"Hopefully now I can get an A-League goal, get more minutes, work hard and show what I can do."
