Del Piero agrees terms with Sydney

Sydney FC have formally announced that Juventus icon Alessandro Del Piero has agreed terms with the club in an official statement on Friday.

• Live Transfer Blog: Deadline Day

In a stunning coup, the A-League side have seemingly beaten off competition from Celtic and Swiss club FC Sion to capture the 2006 World Cup winner.

"Sydney FC chairman Scott Barlow is proud to announce that Italian football legend Alessandro Del Piero has agreed to finalise details on a contract with the Sky Blues after rejecting all other offers.

"Sydney FC chief executive officer Tony Pignata will fly to Italy over the weekend to conclude the signing of the contract in what is the biggest signing in Australian sports history," the statement read.

The notice, posted on the club's official website also contained a quote from Barlow who added his thoughts.

"This is huge for Sydney FC, huge for the A-League and huge for Australian football. We feel honoured that Alessandro has decided to play for Sydney FC and we share his excitement that a move to Sydney FC will create a lasting legacy for football in this country," the chairman said.

"I want to thank Tony Pignata and Lou Sticca for the outstanding work over the last few days in progressing discussions with Alessandro and look forward to Tony finalising the contract in Italy over the coming days."

Del Piero was released by Juventus following the expiry of his final contract after spending 19 years in Turin, becoming the club's leading appearance maker and goal scorer.
