Defender Scott Neville has left Perth Glory, with Brisbane Roar his rumoured A-League destination.

Neville returned to Glory for a second stint before the 2017/18 campaign and went on to add another 41 A-League games to his tally.

The 30-year-old started just seven games under Tony Popovic last season and is now set to join the Robbie Fowler era at the Roar.

Neville is the second defender to depart Glory over the past week, with former Socceroos left-back Jason Davidson leaving to join South Korean giants Ulsan Hyundai.

"I'm departing on good terms and would like to thank everyone at Glory," Neville said.

"It was fantastic to be a part of the squad last season that finally brought some silverware to a club that will always be close to my heart."

Glory announced earlier this week that they had signed defender Dane Ingham and forward Nick D'Agostino, from Brisbane, on two-year deals.
