NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers are proud to announce the re-signing of Nikolai Topor-Stanley on a three year deal that will keep him in Red and Black until the end of the 2016/17 season.

A foundation player for the Club, the defender shares the record for most Wanderers appearances in the Hyundai A-League with Ante Covic; both players having taken the pitch 57 times.

Topor-Stanley’s form has been impressive since day one for the Wanderers, earning the Members’ Player of the Year award in 2012/13 as well as selection in the Foxtel A-League All Stars in the inaugural All Stars match against Manchester United.

The past season has also seen his leadership qualities come to the fore having worn the captain’s armband many times throughout the year including the Hyundai A-League 2013/14 Grand Final.

Joining Western Sydney in 2012 Topor-Stanley says his decision to move from Newcastle to be a foundation Wanderers player has transformed his career.

“After the first couple of weeks with Western Sydney I knew that moving to the Wanderers was the best decision of my life,” explained Topor-Stanley.

“I trust completely in Tony Popovic, his vision and how he wants the club to be run.

“I am really pleased to be given the opportunity to continue working at a club like this and I am looking forward to future challenges with the Wanderers.”
