Former Italy forward Alessandro Del Piero has announced he will activate the second year of his two-year deal to remain with Sydney FC.

Overseas clubs were reportedly lining up bids to tempt Del Piero away from the Harbour City, but the 38-year-old and his family wanted to extend their stay.

"I am very happy to be staying at Sydney FC for another season," Del Piero said.

"I chose Sydney FC at the beginning of this season because I wanted to show my love of football in another country and I have enjoyed the challenge and my time at Sydney FC and in Australia.
