Official release from Sydney FC

Sydney FC is pleased to announce the signing of attacking midfielder Ali Abbas on a two-year contract.

The Iraqi international agreed terms over the weekend and immediately joined his new Sky Blue team mates for training this morning.

25-year old Abbas was a member of the victorious Iraqi national team that won the Asian Cup in 2007 and has spent the last three years playing in the Hyundai A-League with the Newcastle Jets.

"I'm really happy to be joining Sydney FC. It is exciting for me to be moving to one of the biggest clubs in Australia, which already has a history of success in the A-League," said Abbas.

"Sydney FC has a strong squad and a great coaching staff, and I look forward to working with both.

"Now I'm ready to focus on training for next season, and help the team challenge for another title."
