SOCCER prodigy Devante Clut 18, has joined A-League club Brisbane Roar.
The Green Valley boy moved to Queensland to trial, with the bold move paying off.
Brisbane Roar scouted the youngster seeing him as a player of rich potential.
Clut hasn't played in the A-League top squad in the competition rounds so far this season.
But he did play against Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory and Central Coast Mariners in the preseason games.
Players contracted to A-League clubs not selected in the top team and who are under-20 then play in the National Youth League.
Clut's first game was on Saturday against Melbourne Victory at Goodwin Park, Brisbane.
The midfielder said while he didn't get selected for the Roar's opening A-League games he will keep working and learning.
Clut played junior representative level with Southern Districts Soccer Football Association and and his junior club sides were Smithfield RSL, Canley Heights RSL and Freeman Sports.
He also played with Parramatta FC Eagles in the NSW Premier League.
Clut said playing for the Brisbane Roar is a "wonderful opportunity".
"They are a strong club and very professional," Clut said.
"It's always been an ambition of mine to play in the A-League."
Clut is a year 12 student at Westfields Sports High School. He is one of the star performers in the soccer program run by Trevor Morgan. Clut said he will finish his Higher School Certificate by correspondence. His father David said his son had worked extremely hard to get a chance with Brisbane Roar.
