Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today confirmed the signing of Ramy Najjarine until the end of the 2021/22 season.

An inaugural member of the Wanderers Academy, Najjarine was a special talent in the Red & Black youth system before departing in 2016 to play for Melbourne City, spending last season on loan at the Newcastle Jets.

An exciting and talented young prospect, Najjarine has already featured in 37-matches in the A-League and at 21 looks set to have for a strong season. 

The Fairfield local will link up with his hometown club for the very first time of his senior career and joins his younger brother Zane, a member of the Wanderers Academy U13s squad. 

Najjarine said he was proud to represent his hometown club.

“I was here from day one, so you can imagine the feeling and emotions I have for this club,” said Najjarine.

“I grew up out here in the West, so playing for my hometown club and a club that my family supports as well is an amazing feeling.

“I’ve got a cheeky little brother who is now trying to follow in my footsteps at the Wanderers Academy and it’s important for me to be a role model for him and the Western Sydney community.

“He’s looking up to me and I’m here to show what I’ve got for the club and fans.”

Head coach Carl Robinson welcomed Najjarine back to the club.

“Ramy is an excellent young talent that understands what the Wanderers stand for having been born and bred in Western Sydney as well as starting his youth career at the club’s Academy,” said Robinson.

“He is a natural-born creative player in the final third and has a strong commitment of improving and pushing himself.

“We welcome him back to the club.”

The Wanderers will provide further squad updates in the coming weeks.
