Defender Adam Griffiths has left the Chinese Super League to sign with Sydney FC in Australia's A-League, the club said on Monday.

Griffiths, 32, joins the former two-time A-League champions under their new coach Ian Crook after spending two years with Hangzhou in the Chinese Super League.

It will be the third A-League club Griffiths has played with, following stints with the Newcastle Jets and Gold Club United. Griffiths has also played in Europe with Oostende, Bournemouth and Brentford. 

"I'm really happy to be joining Sydney FC, it's like coming home for me," Griffiths said. "I grew up in Sydney, I played all my early football in Sydney and to be playing for Sydney FC is fantastic."
