The Western Sydney Wanderers have confirmed the signing of Vedran Janjetovic to an 18-month contract.
The Western Sydney native made the switch following five seasons at Sydney FC and is the first player during the club’s playing history to make the switch to the Red & Black.
The keeper was granted personal leave by the Sky Blues last month and has been out of action ever since.
The 29-year-old only signed a new two-year deal in March before off-season recruit Danny Vukovic was installed as a starter.
The seventh-placed Wanderers will relish the inclusion of the experienced gloveman with Andrew Redmayne and back-up Jerrad Tyson failing to produce consistent form.
“I’ve heard a lot about the club and what a good place it is to be and I’m happy to be home,” Janjetovic said.
“I haven’t trained in a little while so I’ve got to get up to speed. There are a lot of challenges ahead but I’m looking forward to every single one of them.
“I live just around the corner from our training base so it feels like home. I’ve been welcomed by everyone. It’s been a good start.”
Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the club looked forward to welcoming Janjetovic into the family.
“Vedran is a western Sydney boy whose attributes and personality will fit our environment well,” he said.
“Bringing players to the Western Sydney Wanderers who learned their football in Western Sydney is always a positive and we look forward to seeing our fans welcome Vedran with open arms.”
Janjetovic joined the team for training Tuesday for the first time before his transfer officially goes through on January 4.
