Fringe international defender Aziz Behich has returned to Melbourne Heart for the next Australian A-League season on loan from Turkey, the club said on Thursday.
Heart has worked out a deal with Turkish Super Lig club Bursaspor in a boost for the Australian club where he has made 65 appearances.
"Aziz brings so many qualities to our club that it was a no-brainer to have him back. He is just so full of energy and passion for the Heart," coach John Aloisi said.
The Club has also confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Tando Velaphi to a one-season deal.
