Ryan can’t wait to start at AZ. “You only have to look at the club and its history once to see that it is a good and ambitious club. There is a lot to play for and my dream is to achieve the highest of the highest together with the team,” said Ryan.

The goalkeeper launched his career in Europe at Club Brugge, where he settled in 2013. After two seasons he left for Valencia, which would keep him at Racing Genk for six months in 2017. Then it went to Brighton & Hove Albion, for which Ryan played 123 matches in the Premier League. After a short spell at Arsenal and a season at Real Sociedad, Ryan ended up in Copenhagen last summer.

Ryan was recently active with the Australian national team at the World Cup in Qatar. As captain, he guided his team to the eighth finals, in which the later world champion Argentina turned out to be too strong.
