Transfer news: Roar star bound for Korea

Brisbane Roar have confirmed that the club has accepted an offer for the transfer of Dimitri Petratos to Korean side Ulsan Hyundai, subject to the player completing a medical.

Newcastle Jets will receive compensation should the transfer be completed. 

Roar midfielder Dimitri Petratos netted one of the all-time great Hyundai A-League goals on Friday night.

Petratos made 14 appearances for the Roar this season and scored two goals, including a stunning long-range free kick against Melbourne Victor y in Round 15.
