Melbourne City FC can confirm that midfielder Kearyn Baccus has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal to remain at the Club until the end of the 2021/22 season.
The 27-year-old joined the Club in October as an injury-replacement player, becoming an integral member of Head Coach Warren Joyce’s side since the start of the season.
Baccus has started in all eleven Hyundai A-League matches in 2018/19, making the third most passes in the competition at an impressive pass success rate of 87 per cent.
The midfielder has provided a wealth of experience in the middle of the park, with his consistency in performance playing a key role in City’s current run of form.
Speaking on his signing, the midfielder has outlined his intentions to continue working hard for the team and the overall goal of winning silverware for the Club.
“It’s been a big couple of months with the Club and now I’m just glad I can officially call Melbourne City home,” Baccus said.
“I’ve wanted to come for a while now and I’m happy to be here now.
“I want to win something and I think with the team that we have that that’s achievable this year, with the coach especially, anything is possible. Hopefully we can win some silverware and be there or thereabouts challenging for the title.
Melbourne City FC can also confirm forward Michael O’Halloran has mutually agreed to terminate his contract.
O’Halloran joined the Club in at the start of the 2018/19 season – making three appearances for the Club in all competitions – and returns home to Scotland for compassionate reasons.
The Club would like to thank Michael for his contribution to the Club and wishes him all the very best.
