Western Sydney Wanderers have added some depth to their goalkeeping stocks with the addition of Danijel Nizic from the UK, while youngster Nicholas Suman has had his scholarship contract extended.
Nizic joins the Wanderers on a two-year deal following the expiration of his contract with League Two’s Morecambe FC.
The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons at Morecambe, who play in the fourth tier in Englland.
An Australian youth international, Nizic returns home for the first time since moving overseas in 2012, where he spent a year on trial with League One side Portsmouth before signing a two-year contract with Championship club Burnley.
The talented shot-stopper has had stints at Woking, Chorley and Crewe Alexandra on loan, and more recently, featured in 11 matches for Morecambe.
Suman will continue his development at the Wanderers after signing a two-year extension on his scholarship contract.
The 18-year-old has been part of the Wanderers Academy set-up since 2015 and made his debut for the club in the Foxtel Y-League.
Suman has been part of the first-team environment for the last two years, cementing himself as a regular starter in the Wanderers’ NPL 2 first-grade team and was also part of the club’s Foxtel Y-League Championship winning side earlier this year.
The duo will be working with and competing against Vedran Janjetovic to secure the Wanderers No.1 jersey for the 2018/19 Season.
