    Melbourne Victory have put their goalkeepers on notice by signing Australian international Nathan Coe.

    The 29-year-old was on Wednesday unveiled as their latest signing on a three-year deal, turning up the pressure on current keepers Lawrence Thomas and Tando Velaphi.

    The Victory cracked their first win of the A-League season by beating Adelaide United 2-1 last weekend, but had conceded seven goals in the opening two rounds.

    Coach Ange Postecoglou coached Coe at national level as a junior and lured him home to Australia once he’d decided to leave Danish club SonderjyskE.

    “We are delighted to welcome Nathan to Melbourne Victory,” Postecoglou said.

    “Nathan has been part of some massive clubs throughout his career to date and his experience in Europe, as well as with the Socceroos, will be invaluable – both on and off the pitch.”

    Coe has been capped three times by the Socceroos and was a squad member at the 2011 Asian Cup.

    There was speculation Victory were going to sign Socceroos defender Jade North however the defender opted to remain with Japanese side Consadole Sapporo.
