Kearyn Baccus has signed with the Western Sydney Wanderers for another two seasons.

The 25-year-old midfielder played every minute of the Wanderers Asian Champions League fixtures and played in all but two A-League matches this season.

Baccus said he’s looking forward to continuing to develop at the club.

“I’m very thankful and excited to be spending next two years of my career at the Wanderers,” Baccus said.

“The coaching staff have taken my game to another level over the last three years and I plan to continue working hard and helping the team.”

Baccus has tallied 54 caps for the Wanderers after joining the club in 2014 from Blacktown City.

Hailing from Kings Park, Baccus was recognised for his strong season with the ACL player of the year for the Wanderers.

In 2017-18, he won’t be the only Baccus in the top squad for the Wanderers with 18-year-old brother Keanu having signed a first team contract in early May.

The younger Baccus said it was a great opportunity after coming up through the Wanderers Academy.

“It means a lot to be finally be rewarded. I’ve wanted this since I was little,” he said.

“Growing up in Blacktown and now playing for a Club like the Wanderers with such a good supporter base, it’s something I’m very grateful for.”
