Cornthwaite, who played 103 games for Adelaide between 2005 and 2011, has spent five years playing in Korea and Malaysia.

"I've been away from Australia for a while but I watched as much A-League as possible ... and Western Sydney have been very successful and played some very good football," Cornthwaite said.
