Sydney FC have signed goalkeeper Chris Oldfield on a short term injury replacement contract, the club has confirmed.
Oldfield spent the week trialling with the Sky Blues, and immediately joined the matchday squad for Saturday's goalless draw with reigning A-League Champions Adelaide United at Allianz Stadium.
The 25-year-old English born shotstopper spent time with the youth set up of EPL giants Liverpool before turning out for Football League clubs Chester, Darlington and Rochdale AFC.
Last season's first choice keeper, Vedran Janjetovic, has lost the No. 1 spot to Danny Vukovic and has been granted indefinite leave by the club to deal with personal issues.
Oldfield joins from Avondale FC and has represented Hume City FC in the PlayStation 4 NPL 1 Victoria Men’s competition, where he put in an impressive display in the FFA Cup semi final against Melbourne Victory last year.
Oldfield will wear jersey number 40 for the Sky Blues.
