Former Denmark international winger Tobias Mikkelsen has become Brisbane Roar's fourth off-season signing.

Mikkelsen has signed a one-year deal with the Roar, moving outside Europe for the first time in his career.

Brisbane will hope he can translate the kind of goals record he's had in Scandinavia to the A-League.

Mikkelsen netted 13 goals in 76 games for Nordsjaelland in Denmark, and a two-year stint in Norway with Rosenborg yielded 14 goals in 80 matches.

He made his Denmark debut in 2011 and played eight times for the national side.

Tobias will provide another attacking option in the front third.

One of those international games saw him lining up alongside new teammate Thomas Kristensen, in a World Cup Qualifier in 2012.

Roar coach John Aloisi believes Mikkelsen's experience will be invaluable in his squad.

"We're pleased to have signed another high-calibre footballer who has not only played for his country, but at the highest level for nearly 15 years," said Aloisi.

"Tobias will provide another attacking option in the front third for our talented side as we prepare for another successful campaign."

Brisbane have been making some big moves during the off-season, having lured Australia international Adam Taggart on a two-year deal from Perth Glory and signed Stefan Mauk from Dutch side N.E.C. for the next four seasons.

Mikkelsen said: "I feel that I still have a lot to achieve and I will always do my best to be a better player. I can't wait to train and play with my new teammates."

Brisbane are 18/1 to win the minor premiership.

Meanwhile, Central Coast Mariners have released captain Alan Baro.

The Mariners agreed to terminate the contract of the 32-year-old defender so he can return to Spain.

New coach Mike Mulvey released Dutchman Wout Brama last week but has signed Jonathan Aspropotamitis from Western Sydney.

Central Coast are 18/1 to win the 2019 Grand Final.
