Western Sydney Wanderers have today announced the signing of Spanish central defender Aritz Borda for the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season.
Borda joins the Wanderers from Spanish outfit Deportivo Alavés, having helped the side secure promotion to La Liga after topping the Segunda division in 2015/16.
The Wanderers believe Borda will provide a wealth of experience and maturity to the squad.
“From what our coaching staff have seen of Aritz they are very confident he will be a formidable presence in our backline this season,” said the club’s CEO John Tsatsimas.
“He has played in Asia previously and has had good experience in European leagues so we expect he will fit into our structure well.”
Borda is looking forward to joining the squad and representing the Wanderers.
“I am super excited to join the Wanderers for the next two seasons.
“This will be a new adventure for me and I’m sure I will enjoy it. I am coming to give my best for the team and help them with the Championship” said Borda.
