Western Sydney Wanderers have bolstered their squad for the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season with the signing of Spanish midfielder Andreu Guerao Mayoral.
A product of the Barcelona youth system, Andreu spent 12 years with the Catalan giants and made his first team debut in 2004 against Olympique de Marseilles during a tour of France.
Having spent the majority of his career in Spain, the central midfielder has been with Racing Santander for the past two seasons where he earnt promotion from the Segunda B and reached the Quarter Finals of the 2013/14 Copa del Rey.
The 32-year-old also appeared in the 2011 FIFA Club World Cup during a guest stint with Auckland City.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the Spaniard would make a good addition to the team.
“Andreu has spent time at clubs such as Barcelona and Malaga and we’re excited to add this sort of football pedigree to the playing squad,” said Tsatsimas.
“It is important to get players of the calibre of Andreu to add a significant backbone to our squad in the middle of the park.
“We look forward to welcoming Andreu to our Club when he arrives for pre-season training in the coming weeks.”
