Ibini (22) joins Club from Chinese side Shanghai SIPG where he played since 2013 before playing for Central Coast Mariners. Last season the Australian, with Nigerian roots, played on loan for Syndey FC in the Australian A-League where he scored eight goals in 28 games. Ibini also made his debut for the Australian national team when he played a friendly against the United Arab Emirates in the end of 2014.</p>

&quot;Joining Club Brugge was a logical step for me. Not only to see my good friend Maty back, but also because Club is a team with international allure. Their success in the Europa League didn&#39;t go unnoticed Down Under. I have tons of respect for what they&#39;ve achieved this season. I&#39;m already looking forward to give all I have for Club.&quot;</p>

&quot;We know Bernie for some time now. In 2013, when he tested at Club, he already made a good impression and he was bookmarked as one of the biggest talents in Australian football. He developed well in the last two years and now the opportunitiy presented itself to land him. Ibini is an athlete, pacy and can still develop. Furthermore his versatility is a real asset for the team.&quot;</p>
