Proud Victorian Mathew Leckie is coming home to join Melbourne City.
The Socceroos star, who captained his country and scored in Australia’s 3-0 World Cup qualifying win over Kuwait on Friday morning, has signed a three-year deal with the A-League premiers.
“As a Melbourne boy I have followed Melbourne City’s growth closely in recent years,” the 30-year-old attacking weapon said.
“The club are building something special, and I’m excited to be coming home to join the premiers after such an unbelievable season of football.
“I’ve been talking with all the Melbourne City players in the Socceroos squad, and I can’t wait to get started, to get to work and bring home some more silverware for the fans.”
