Melbourne City FC Re-Sign Fitzgerald, Sign Arzani

Melbourne City FC can announce Nick Fitzgerald has signed a permanent deal with the Club’s Hyundai A-League team, while the Club can also announce the acquisition of 17-year-old forward Daniel Arzani.

Fitzgerald, 24, who signed in the January transfer window on a short-term deal until the end of the 2015/16 season, has agreed a new deal which will see him contracted to the Club until the conclusion of the 2017/18 season.

Fitzgerald played an important role in the second half of City’s 2015/16 campaign, featuring in 13 matches since joining City in early 2016, contributing three goals.

“It’s been wonderful, I’ve just loved every minute of it; being in such a professional environment with outstanding players and to be able to play in such high-pressure games,” Fitzgerald said.

“It’s a real privilege to play for this Club and for the fans that turn up every week and I hope they have enjoyed what I have brought to the Club.”

Arzani, a young, emerging attacking midfielder, arrives at the City Football Academy from the Football Federation Australia Centre of Excellence and has also signed a two-year deal.

A creative-minded midfielder, Arzani has represented Australia at the under-16 and under-17 level, having featured in the FFA National Youth Championships (2013), Asia AFC under-16 Championship (2014), under-17 World Cup (2015) and in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 Foxtel National Youth League.

Fitzgerald and Arzani join Manny Muscat, Dean Bouzanis and Bruce Kamau as City’s latest signings ahead of the 2016/17 season.
