Wellington Phoenix are delighted to announce Sarpreet Singh has signed a new two-year contract.
This follows on from an outstanding debut season including four goals in 11 appearances which led to the player making his full international appearance for the All Whites.
With the security of the new contract, Singh says he is now looking forward to helping the team achieve something special.
“I see my future here as I want to help bring success and trophies to the club.
“This year, the focus is very much on progressing more than last year and the squad is shaping up to include a lot of quality.
“Steven (Taylor) is obviously a very big statement and it shows the ambition of the club and I want to be a part of that.
“The gaffer’s vision, to bring a never-say-die winning mentality to the team, is starting to take shape and I really want to be a big part of that.”
Singh has experienced a fantastic year since his debut, with a call up to the All Whites squad against Canada before going on to score his first International goal against Kenya in the Intercontinental Cup in India in June.
Head Coach Mark Rudan, was very keen on tying down Singh when he first arrived and is happy that a deal has been agreed.
“The impact he’s made and character shown when entering the senior side at 19 years of age is to be commended.
“He is such a young talent with quality that fits in perfectly with what we are trying to achieve in unearthing Kiwi footballers and developing that raw ability.
“He has worked so hard in pre-season and I am looking forward to seeing him develop further this season.”
