Goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne has found a fourth A-League home, signing for Western Sydney Wanderers after gaining a release from Melbourne City.

The 26-year-old gloveman heads back to his home state for the upcoming season, replacing released Ante Covic.

Redmayne, a one-time trainee with English Premier League giant Arsenal, said working under coach Tony Popovic and Australia great Zeljko Kalac are strong drawcards.

"I'm looking forward to getting to Sydney and settling in, developing my game further and taking it to the next level under Spider [Kalac]," he said.

"I want to add to the team and to the success this club has achieved in its first three seasons."

Gosford-born Redmayne, who has signed a two-year deal, also moves closer to his family.

"As soon as I told Mum, she was ecstatic that she'd get to see a bit more of me," he said.

"It is a massive plus that I've got so much family with my mum, uncles, aunties and cousins all in the western Sydney region near Emu Plains."

Redmayne was overtaken in the pecking order at City by Tando Velaphi after a miserable start to the 2014-2015 season.

But that hasn't put the Wanderers off signing the 26-year-old, with chief executive John Tsatsimas saying Redmayne will be a great addition to the squad.

"He has played at the top level and been in some very successful groups throughout his career and we are excited to start pre-season and get the best out of our players," he said.

Redmayne has 53 starts in his A-League career with Central Coast Mariners, Brisbane Roar and City.
