St Patrick's Athletic are pleased to announce the signing of 23 year old Dutch defender Jordi Balk.
The defender joins the club having recently spent three years with FC Oss in the Dutch second division, and previously a brief spell with Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.
Balk began his career locally at SVF Cothen, before joining SV Houten and then joining the academy of Dutch club Utrecht.
The 23 year old played 90 minutes for the Saints in last Wednesday's 1-0 friendly win over Scottish side Heart of Midlothian.
Balk awaits international clearance ahead of the Saints next SSE Airtricity League fixture on Sunday against league leaders Cork City, kick-off 2pm on Sunday in Turner's Cross.
