Sydney FC striker Dwight Yorke arrives in Sydney this Wednesday (June 29) to start his two year stint with the ambitious Hyundai A-League club.
Yorke, whose career has taken him to clubs like Manchester United, Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers, arrives in Sydney at 6.05am on Wednesday morning at Sydney International Airport on flight EK 412 from London via Dubai.
The 33-year-old will also attend a press conference later in the day at Aussie Stadium alongside Sydney FC coach and former World Cup winning player Pierre Littbarski.
Yorke, who has been representing Trinidad and Tobago in 2006 World Cup Qualifiers, will begin training early next week.
The former Manchester United striker is a massive addition to Sydney FC’s already potent attacking line of David Zdrilic, Saso Petrovski and Alex Salazar, who scored 17 goals between them in the eight match World Club Championship Qualifying Tournament.
Yorke’s first competitive match for Sydney FC is expected to be against the New Zealand Knights in a pre-season game at Aussie Stadium on Saturday July 23 at 8pm.
