The 25-year-old has joined the Australian side on a season-long loan deal.
“Throughout his time in Europe, James has shown that he has the talent and attributes to compete at the highest levels of club football,” Melbourne Victory coach Ange Postecoglou told The Advertiser.
“At just 25, James is in the prime of his career, so we are extremely excited about what he will bring to Melbourne Victory.
“He obviously has a desire to get back into the Socceroos set-up, and there’s no better way to state his case than to have an impressive A-League season.”
