Melbourne City confirm Curtis Good as final signing ahead of 2018-19 A-League season

New Melbourne Victory signing Ola Toivonen speaks on a particular incident involving Swedish fans at the World Cup.

The return of defender Curtis Good to the A-League signals an end to Melbourne City's off-season shopping, and the start of their title challenge.

Good returns to the club six years after his form for Melbourne Heart won him a long-term deal with Premier League powerhouse Newcastle United.

The sky was seemingly the limit for the Socceroos prospect but a procession of injuries have derailed the centre-back's career.

"I learnt a lot over in the UK but unfortunately my opportunities were curbed," he...

Melbourne City marquee Ritchie de Laet: 'I just want to play football again'

New Melbourne Victory signing Ola Toivonen speaks on a particular incident involving Swedish fans at the World Cup.

Melbourne City signing Ritchie de Laet's CV includes an English Premier League medal, promotion and international caps with Belgium.

But his goal in the A-League, where he has linked up with former coach Warren Joyce, is far simpler.

"I just want to play football again and enjoy it," he said on Tuesday.

"I know what the gaffer expects from his players. I want to graft again and do well for the team."

Joyce nods as he hears the words from his marquee recruit, who has signed a one-year loan deal from...

Melbourne City bring in Ritchie de Laet on loan from Aston Villa

Melbourne City have bolstered their defence ahead of the A-League campaign, signing Belgian Ritchie de Laet from Aston Villa on a season-long loan. 

The deal is the second in as many years from the English Championship club, having brought striker Ross McCormack on an injury replacement deal last term.

De Laet said the Scot, as well as Villa-based Socceroos captain Mile Jedinak, recommended the club after coach Warren Joyce came calling.

"When Warren called me, I was ready for something completely...

Melbourne City sign Mark Birighitti to three-year deal after Australia return

Melbourne City have moved to replace the recently departed Dean Bouzanis with fringe Socceroos goalkeeper Mark Birighitti.

Birighitti keeper made the PFA's team of the season in his last full season in the A-League and bolsters City's hopes of success this season.

"I'm pleased to be returning to Australia and to join a club with genuine title aspirations and a group with talent like Melbourne City is very exciting," Birighitti said in a statement.

The 27-year-old signed a three-year deal, returning...

Luke Brattan set for Melbourne City return after spinal-injury scare

Luke Brattan is grateful he's taking his place in Melbourne City's FFA Cup team on Wednesday night and not watching on from a treatment table.

For 45 minutes earlier this month, the combative midfielder's career was on the line.

Brattan was felled by an innocuous challenge by ex-City teammate Stefan Mauk in their Cup win over Brisbane Roar.

He lay on the Dolphin Stadium pitch for what seemed like an eternity, waiting for an ambulance.

"There was a bit of pain but tingling in my fingers. I thought...
