The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers today secured the signature of Spaniard Dimas Delgado on a one year deal.The 32-year-old holding midfielder joins countryman Andreu at the Club with a well-credentialed playing history in Spain’s Segunda División.

Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said securing Dimas showed that the Club is committed to being an immediate threat in the league this season.
“We have had a very big off-season in terms of our recruitment, we believe that these new additions will have us in a very strong position leading into the coming season,” said Tsatsimas.
“Dimas has played in a top league in Europe his whole career and we know the calibre of player he is and that he can add another dimension to our midfield.
“We look forward to welcoming Dimas to our Club and putting the final pieces together for a very strong Hyundai A-League season.”
Dimas said he was looking forward to a great season with the Wanderers.
“I am very happy with the opportunity and I look forward to getting started with the Wanderers,” said Dimas.
“It will be a very nice experience for me and my family, I’m going to a great country like Australia and a great city and I will do my best to adapt to the city and the Club as quickly as possible.
“I wish we have a great season full of success.”
The Wanderers are next in action against Central Coast Mariners at C.ex Coffs International Stadium, 7:00pm Friday 7 August.
