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."
