Ryan Griffiths joins Adelaide United
11:50 AEST Wed Jan 8 2014

Adelaide United have bolstered their attacking ranks with the signature of Ryan Griffiths for the remainder of the A-League season.

The former Newcastle Jets forward recently returned to Australia after a season with Chinese club Beijing Boxy and his deal with the Reds is pending a medical clearance from the club.

Griffiths, 32, scored 19 goals for the Jets across two seasons from 2011-13 and football manager Michael Petrillo said the Reds were looking for more of the same.

"Ryan is an experienced player who (coach) Josep (Gombau) feels will suit our game and believes will be a very valuable acquisition adding depth and flexibility to the squad," Petrillo said in a statement on Wednesday.

Griffiths will arrive in Adelaide on Wednesday night and is expected to be available for Adelaide's clash with A-League frontrunners Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.
