Behich returns to Heart on loan

Fringe international defender Aziz Behich has returned to Melbourne Heart for the next Australian A-League season on loan from Turkey.

Heart has worked out a deal with Turkish Super Lig club Bursaspor in a boost for the club where he has made 65 appearances.

"Aziz brings so many qualities to our club that it was a no-brainer to have him back. He is just so full of energy and passion for the Heart," coach John Aloisi said on Thursday.

The Club has also confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Tando Velaphi to a one-season deal.
