UAE club Al Nasr have signed Lazio midfielder Mark Bresciano on a two-year deal.

Bresciano, 31, agreed terms with the Oud Mehta outfit on Monday and will reunite with his old Palermo coach Walter Zenga.

After failing to land South Korea international Lee Yong-rae, Al Nasr team manager Khalid Obaid is delighted with the acquisition of the Australia international.

"Bresciano is a good addition to the team with European experience," Obaid said on Gulf News.

"The board has supported Zenga's ambition and with Bresciano we will challenge for the title and Asian Champions League progression this season."

The midfielder is reported to have put pen to paper on a deal worth £3.4million and will join Al Nasr as their Asian allocation.

The move will complete the club's foreign quota, with UAE rules limiting clubs to four foreigners per squad, one of whom must be from the Asian Football Confederation.
