Adelaide United is delighted to announce it has signed Craig Goodwin on loan from Saudi Professional League club, Al-Wehda, until the end of the A-League 2020/21 season.

Goodwin previously spent three seasons with the Reds across two separate stints and scored a total of 25 goals in 92 appearances in all competitions.

Capped five times by the Socceroos, the 29-year-old’s honours with the Club include an A-League Championship and Premiership in 2016 as well as the 2018 FFA Cup.

The winger was also named Aurelio Vidmar Club Champion in 2016 following a brilliant 2015/16 campaign and received the 2018 Mark Viduka Medal after scoring a sensational brace in the 2-1 final win over Sydney FC.

Speaking ahead of re-joining the Reds, Goodwin said: “I’m very excited to be coming home to Adelaide United for the remainder of this season. 

“It’s always a special feeling pulling on the Reds shirt and to be playing in front of family and friends weekly. 

“The boys have had a mixed start to the season, but have put some good performances in that we’ll look to build on and have a successful year.” 

Adelaide United Director of Football, Bruce Djite, said: “Bringing someone of Craig’s quality back to Adelaide is fantastic for the Club. 

“Not only will his A-League experience help the younger players, but he is another great character for the changeroom and adds a lot of quality to the squad. 

“Craig’s been playing regularly overseas the last few months, so he’s fit and ready to start playing matches once he’s released from quarantine and reintegrated into the squad.” 

Goodwin will reclaim the number 11 shirt for the Reds and will arrive in Adelaide once he has completed his mandatory quarantine.
