Young Socceroos striker joins Sydney FC
Young Socceroos striker Corey Gameiro will remain in the A-League next season after penning a two-year deal with Sydney FC.
The 20-year-old, previously contracted to English Premier League club Fulham, played seven games last A-League season while on loan to Wellington Phoenix.
He's also spent time with Dutch club FC Eindhoven.
Gameiro will join the Sky Blues at the end of Australia's Under-20 World Cup campaign in Turkey.
"I grew up in Wollongong and it will be like coming home," he said in a statement on Friday.
"I'm looking forward to joining my new teammates in pre-season training, playing alongside a great of the game like Alessandro Del Piero."
Gameiro's impact up front hasn't gone unnoticed, with the youngster scoring a hat-trick in the Young Socceroos' World Cup qualifying win over Jordan.
It added to his total of six goals in nine appearances for Australia's under-20 squad.
"He made an impression in a short period of time with Wellington last year, has played well for the Under-20s and we're pleased he'll join us for the next two seasons," Sydney FC coach Frank Farina said.
"He is a good young striker and he will fit in nicely with what we are trying to achieve at Sydney FC over the next few years."
