Sydney FC have announced a third major signing in as many days, securing a two-year deal with midfielder Anthony Caceres.

The 26-year-old impressed in a five-month loan deal last season from from parent club and Premier League giants Manchester City.

"Anthony was a fantastic asset last season and put in a number of impressive displays across all competitions," Sydney FC coach Steve Corica said.

"His skill and versatility make him a great option for us both domestically and in Asia and I'm looking forward to working with him again."

Caceres came on as a substitute in Sydney FC's A-League Grand Final penalty shootout win over Perth Glory in May.

"I'm driven to win more titles and to go further than this club has gone before in the Champions League," Caceres said.

Sydney confirmed on Tuesday they had secured the services of German midfielder and ex-Western Sydney import Alexander Baumjohann, while a day later confirmed a deal with Socceroos defender Ryan McGowan.

Before that they announced the signing of New Zealand's former Melbourne City forward Kosta Barbarouses and still have one more import spot to fill.

The Sky Blues also announced details of games against local lower league opposition before facing French giants Paris Saint-Germain in China on July 30.

They play NPL NSW 3 side Dunbar Rovers on July 18 at Leichhardt Oval and back up five days later against NPL NSW 2 club St George City FA at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.
