Macarthur FC sign goalkeeper Filip Kurto

Macarthur FC have moved swiftly to replace retired goalkeeper Adam Federici with the signing of 6-foot-3 shot-stopper Filip Kurto.

The former Western United and Wellington Phoenix goalkeeper has played in more than 60 A-League matches after spending most of his professional career in the Netherlands.

"I am really excited to be joining Macarthur FC and make the move to Sydney. I think the club has done a tremendous job on recruitment for the upcoming season and I look forward to joining my teammates," the 30-year-old said.

"It's always a challenge moving to a new city, but I believe it will be an exciting one for both myself and my family."

Bulls coach Ante Milicic said he is looking forward to having the 2018/19 goalkeeper of the year at the club.

"Filip will bring his invaluable European and A-League knowledge and experience to our squad. Alongside Nick Suman, he will give us tremendous security in the goalkeeping department," he said.

"He has been outstanding in his A-League journey so far and I look forward to watching what he can bring under the guidance of myself and Glen Moss for the upcoming season."
