Minyip-Murtoa export Kieran Delahunty will ply his trade in the West Australian Football League next season.
Delahunty, 26, has joined Perth from NEAFL outfit NT Thunder, after the AFL decided to disband the Thunder football program.
The Toohey medallist signed with the Thunder this year and went on to be crowned the club's leading goalkicker in his inaugural NEAFL season.
The move to one of Australia's premier state leagues caps a whirlwind couple of seasons for Delahunty, who only two years ago was playing in the Wimmera Football League with the Burras.
Delahunty appeared to be in line to join cousin and WAFL best-and-fairest Lachlan Delahunty at Subiaco, until restrictions placed on the reigning premier made the move infeasible.
In response to Subiaco's stranglehold over the league in recent seasons, the club was restricted to only recruiting multipoint players to replace those leaving the club.
Perth finished sixth in the 2019 WAFL season, just outside finals contention.
Delahunty told the Mail-Times in September that he was going to take some away from football over summer.
"I'm looking forward to having a couple of months off and giving my body a rest. I'm not sure how these blokes continue to play footy 12 months of the year," he said.
"After Christmas, I'll get back into things."
Perth described its new recruit as "a tall, mobile key forward, who they expect a high level of scoring from".
Perth's new recruit will soon receive service from an AFL premiership winner, with 215-game West Coast Eagles player Chris Masten joining him next season.
Masten signed with the club after the Eagles delisted him at the season's end.
Perth is coached by former Melbourne and Carlton star Earl Spalding.
