“Andy is now well settled in Perth and excitingly, he is also working towards securing his Australian citizenship.

“With 17 players contracted for next season, we are in a good position to build upon our squad in the coming weeks and months,” he added

Since arriving to Perth Glory ahead of the 2014/15 Hyundai A-League season, Keogh has played 70 Hyundai A-League games and scored 34 goals (12 in 2014/15, 10 in 2015/16 and 12 in 2016/17).

Despite his relatively short tenure at the club, Andy was recently voted by Perth Glory members as part of its Ultimate XI (1996-2016) team of the last 20 seasons.

“I’m thrilled that I have extended my contract for another year which will see me at the club for at least the next two-seasons,” said Keogh.

“I am happy at Perth Glory and my family and I have settled well in Perth and WA.
