Panamanian striker Yau extends Sydney FC loan

Yairo Yau has extended his loan deal with Sydney FC by a further 12 months.

The 23-year old Panama international spent last season on loan with the Sky Blues from homeland club Sporting San Miguelito, scoring six A-League goals.

He will now stay with Sydney for the 2013/14 season, forming an attacking group which includes Alessandro Del Piero, Joel Griffiths, Corey Gameiro and Joel Chianese.

"I am happy to be continuing my career with Sydney FC," Yau said. "I like Sydney, the fans and my team mates. I am excited to be back in the Sydney FC team."

Sydney coach Frank Farina added: "Yairo is young, he's 23, he scored 6 goals in ten appearances last year so that was the key.

"If you ask any football manager in the world what their priority is, it would be a striker who can score goals, has pace and is comfortable on the ball and he ticks all of those boxes."
