Melbourne City have signed former Western Sydney Wanderer Jason Trifiro on a one-year deal.

Trifiro made 37 appearances with Western Sydney after signing as one of the club's inaugural players in 2012.

The 27-year-old has spent much of the pre-season training with City, including an impressive performance against Manchester City in the club's pre-seson friendly against the EPL giants.

"Jason was impressive against Manchester City in the Gold Coast and has trained well with us during pre-season,” van't Schip said.

“We've seen him perform for Western Sydney in the A-League and Asian Champions League and he will bring added depth to our midfield this season.”

Trifiro joins Ivan Franjic, Steve Kuzmanovski, Corey Gameiro, Harry Novillo, Aaron Hughes, Michael Zullo, Wade Dekker, Bruno Fornaroli and Thomas Sorensen as the club's new recruits for the 2015-16 season.
