Wanderers sign Redmayne on two-year deal

Goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne has signed a two-year deal with the Western Sydney Wanderers after his Melbourne City departure.

Redmayne, 26, had his contract at City mutually terminated – and his move to Parramatta was confirmed on Thursday.

With Ante Covic having departed, Redmayne will be battling Dean Bouzanis for the starting spot at the Wanderers.

"Andrew has a fantastic work ethic and will be a great addition to our squad," Wanderers chief executive John Tsatsimas said.

"He has played at the top level and been in some very successful groups throughout his career and we are excited to start pre-season and get the best out of our players for the coming season."

Redmayne said learning from Wanderers goalkeeping coach Zeljko Kalac was a big reason for his move.

“I’m excited about this opportunity and look forward to getting to work,” said Redmayne.

“I want to add to the team and to the success this club has achieved in its first three seasons.

“I’m looking forward to getting to Sydney and settling in, developing my game further and taking it to the next level under Spider who was a big draw card in coming to the club.

“I’d love to win a championship with the Wanderers, I was fortunate to win a couple during my time in Brisbane and there is no better feeling and I want that again for this club and for Western Sydney.

“It is a massive plus that I’ve got so much family with my mum, uncles, aunties and cousins all in the western Sydney region near Emu Plains, as soon as I told mum she was ecstatic that she’d get to see a bit more of me."
