Around the Grounds: Redmayne linked with English club, Glory teen makes Germany move, Wanderers recruit looks the goods

Andrew Redmayne has enjoyed arguably the best season of his career but things could get even better for the Sydney FC shot-stopper.

The last month has seen the 30-year-old star in the Sky Blues’ Grand Final win over Perth Glory – making two saves in the penalty shootout – while he also made his Caltex Socceroos debut in a friendly against Korea Republic.

And now a report in the Bristol Post has Redmayne linked with a possible move to England.

The in-form gloveman has reportedly attracted interest from Bristol City, the same club Caltex Socceroos defender Bailey Wright plays at.

The sticking point could be whether the Robins are prepared to pay a transfer fee for Redmayne, who has another year to run on his Sydney FC deal.

Redmayne, who trialled with Arsenal early in his career, has been with the Sky Blues since 2017.

He has also played for Brisbane Roar, Central Coast Mariners, Melbourne City and Western Sydney Wanderers in the Hyundai A-League.

Italiano – who celebrates that milestone in July – has moved to Europe to prepare for the new season with the U23s squad at Monchengladbach ahead of the start of the campaign in August.

"Jacob Italiano is a great talent whose path we have been following for a long time and we are very happy that he is with us now," Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl said.

Italiano played 19 games for Glory in the Hyundai A-League after making his  debut as a 16-year-old in 2017.

Wanderers recruit has knack for the spectacular

Markus Babbel made his fourth signing of the off-season this week with the addition of Poland international midfielder Radoslaw Majewski.

The 32-year-old has played his entire career in Europe, enjoying most success in his homeland where he has won a Polish Cup and Super Cup.

And by the look of some of his highlights in the Polish Ekstraklasa, the Wanderers have got themselves a player who could light up Bankwest Stadium in the 2019/20 Season.
