Australian international Richard Garcia has joined Sydney FC for the 2013/14 A-League season, the club said on Friday

The former Hull City forward joins the team from Melbourne Heart, where he played 24 games last term, scoring six goals.

Garcia, 31, bolsters the Sydney FC attacking line-up that also includes Italian superstar Alessandro Del Piero and Panama's Yairo Yau.

"I'm thrilled to be joining Sydney FC," Garcia said.

"To be playing alongside Alessandro Del Piero, Brett Emerton and Nick Carle will be a fantastic experience for me and something I'm very much looking forward to."

The new A-League season kicks off in October.
