Filip Kurto has become the latest signing for the Hyundai A-League's newest club, Western United.
The 27-year old Polish shot-stopper joins after a highly successful season with Wellington Phoenix, in which Kurto took out the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 Goalkeeper of the Year award.
He had joined Wellington in 2018 after moving from Eredivisie outfit Roda JC.

“I want to thank the club and most importantly, the Wellington Phoenix fans," Kurto said of his Phoenix departure.
"I will never forget my time here, it’s a great city and I’ve enjoyed every moment playing this season."
Western United assistant coach John Anastasiadis said: “Filip has been simply outstanding in his first ever A-League season.
“We are very lucky he was only on a one-year deal with his former club because it can be very difficult to secure a goalkeeper of his quality.”
“Filip, alongside our young star, James Delianov, will give us tremendous security in the goalkeeping department.
“We also think our fans will like having Filip around. He’s become quite the A-League fan favourite with his quirky on-field actions.”
