Adelaide United have confirmed the departure of fringe Socceroos winger Craig Goodwin.

As reported by The World Game, the 27-year-old has joined Saudi Arabian club Al-Wehda.

Goodwin was the linchpin of Adelaide's attack last season, scoring 10 league goals and a brace in the Reds' FFA Cup triumph.

"I'd like to thank everyone at Adelaide United for the way they’ve treated me over the last twelve months," Goodwin said of his departure. 

"Coming back to South Australia and getting the opportunity to represent my hometown club is something I’ll always be grateful for and to have been part of another team to win silverware here will stay with me throughout the rest of my career. 

"I also want to thank the Reds fans for their incredible support and their dedication to the Adelaide United badge because it was an honour to play in front of you. 

"It’s sad to be leaving Adelaide, but there will always be a warm place in my heart for a club that has given me so much over my football journey."
