Current Socceroos skipper Lucas Neill will join Alessandro Del Piero at Sydney FC for the remainder of the A-League season.

Neill, who was released by United Arab Emirates club Al Wasl earlier this month, said in a statement Saturday he is "excited to be coming back to Australia to play club football in front of friends and family."

Neill, who turns 35 next month, begins training with Sydney on Sunday and will be available for next weekend's match at Melbourne Heart.

Before joining Al Wasl, the Sydney native spent most of his professional career in England with Milwall, Blackburn Rovers, West Ham and Everton, before joining Turkish club Galatasaray and Al Jazira in the UAE.
