Former Sydney FC winger Bernie Ibini could be back in Sky Blue this A-League season.
Ibini has reportedly agreed terms to a season-long loan deal from Belgian's Club Brugge, for whom he signed last year.
The 23-year-old fringe Socceroo was a strong attacking outlet for Sydney in their 2014-15 grand final run with seven goals.
His potential return would give coach Graham Arnold valuable power up front as he rebuilds his side following a disappointing campaign last season.
Ibini joined reigning Belgian Pro League champions Club Brugge on a three-year deal, but broke his leg in his first training session and was ruled out for the entire season.
