Tranmere striker Chris Greenacre has joined A-League side Wellington Phoenix.
Greenacre, who has been Rovers` top scorer in three of the last four seasons, has penned a two-year deal as Phoenix look to fill the void following the departure of last year's Golden Boot winner Shane Smeltz.
"I can't wait," said Greenacre. "It wasn't a tough decision at all, certainly not from a football perspective."
Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert and chief executive Tony Pignata targeted Greenacre prior to a recruiting mission to the United Kingdom in March after Smeltz joined expansion club Gold Coast United.
Greenacre and wife Lynsey are scheduled to arrive in Wellington in the first week of June ahead of the new A-League season, which begins in August.
"The more I learned about the club and about Wellington from Tony the more it appealed," Greenacre added.
