Melbourne Victory have signed Hume City star Jai Ingham until the end of the 2016-17 season.

The 22-year-old, who caught the eye of the club during an impressive FFA Cup campaign, has been training with the reigning champions for the past month.

"Jai is an exciting prospect and we're confident he can make an impact at Melbourne Victory,” Coach Kevin Muscat said.

"He proved during the 2015 NPL season and in the FFA Cup that he was comfortable competing against high-quality opposition.

"He has shown some encouraging signs in training over the last few weeks and we believe he will complement the squad and play his role when he gets his opportunity."

Ingham made 28 appearances for Hume during the 2015 NPL season.
