Football Ferns midfielder Malia Steinmetz has signed a new deal with A-League club Western Sydney Wanderers.
It’ll be her second season with the club after her move from Perth Glory in 2021-22.
Auckland-born Steinmetz (23) began her career as a youngster with Three Kings United and Forrest Hill Milford United before heading to Australia in 2019.
Steinmetz told the Wanderers website:
“My first season at Wanderers was so pivotal for me personally.
“It helped me grow so much as a player and got me mentally in the right frame of mind for the career I’m aspiring to have playing this epic game.
“This club did so much for me last season so I did want to come back and give back as much as I could as a player to the legacy that is here.
“The facilities and people have also always been great and I know it’ll be another good step for me to further my football career.
“The goals are always the classic; we’ll be getting that double- league and cup winners. And I have no doubts about it.
“Might sound like a broken record but we have nothing to lose and we’ll be ruthless as always out there. It’s going to be something special.”
