Mate Dugandzic has joined Adelaide United on a one-year deal.

The 25-year-old joins Adelaide after four years and 75 appearances with Melbourne City.

“I was always keen on coming to Adelaide and obviously the team performed quite well last season, in winning the FFA cup,” said Dugandzic.

“I love the brand of football they play, the way the boys looked and the way it looked like on the outside.

“It seems like a tight unit and the club has a great culture, and this was one of the main reasons in coming to the club.
