Transfer news: A-League defender signs for UAE club


Former Sydney FC and Central Coast defender Zac Anderson has signed a two-year deal with UAE outfit Emirates Club, his agents announced.

Anderson, 25, a former QAS graduate, parted ways with the Sky Blues in May. 

The ex Gold Coast player, who featured in the AFC Champions League this year with Sydney, inked the deal in Dubai on Thursday, reported his representatives FIA. 

He made nine appearances for the Sky Blues last season as the team finished outside the six in the ten-team Hyundai A-League. 

Anderson won a Hyundai A-League championship with the Mariners in 2013 and later moved to the Harbour City after his former Central Coast coach Graham Arnold signed for the Sky Blues. 

Emirates Club play in the Arabian Gulf League and they finished 12th in the 14 team league last season. The club is based in the Emirate of Ras al-Khaimah and featured former Socceroo Brett Holman in their ranks last season.
