Cornthwaite is set to join former Victory coach Mehmet Durakovic and former Sydney player Brendan Gan at the club.

The 32-year-old missed the Wanderers 1-1 draw with the Wellington Phoenix at the weekend and departs the club after 29 appearances since joining in June 2016.

He started in all 11 his games for the Wanderers this season as Josep Gombau continues to refine his squad during the January transfer window.

Jumpei Kusukami and Jacob Melling were also released by the Wanderers this month.

"I would love to thank everyone involved at Western Sydney for making my time at the club so enjoyable. Although if was for only a short while, it has had a lasting impression on my professional career,” Cornthwaite said.

"Captaining the club is a career highlight and something I am very proud of. 

"I would like to wish all the staff and especially all the players good luck for the remainder of the season and beyond.”
