Malta representative Dylan Scicluna has embarked in Australian football after putting pen to paper on a deal with top-flight side Western Sydney Wanderers.
Scicluna, 19, was part of the Malta squad during the home European Championships last July.
Together with his brother Lucas, Scicluna played against Italy and Poland in the opening couple of games of the European finals.
At international level, Scicluna has also played for Australia at U-20’s level having played twice against Morocco and England in 2022.
On the books of English club Wolves, Scicluna returns to Australia for the first time in his professional career.
At Wolves, a 13-year-old Scicluna was already part of their U-18’s squad and went on to make 36 appearances across all competitions at the club.
He was part of the side that finished second in both Premier League 2 Division 2 and Premier League Cup.
“I’ve come to Western Sydney because I think it’s a great next step in my development and I believe there will be opportunities for me to show what I can do to help the team,” Scicluna told the club’s website.
“Western Sydney are one of the biggest Australian clubs and our aim is to win and achieve great things together.
“I’m hoping to become an important part of the squad and be in the starting 11 as soon as possible to help the team win the A-Leagues this season.”
The 2014 Asian Champions League winners will face Brisbane Roar in the Australian Cup quarters on September 13.
Their A-League campaign is pencilled for October 22 when they host New Zealand-based team Wellington Phoenix.
