Stefan Marinovic has come home.

The Wellington Phoenix has unveiled the All Whites' goal keeper as their newest signing.

Marinovic, who has had stints playing in Major League Soccer and the English Championship, says he's been following the Phoenix for a while.

"When I saw that the Phoenix were in need of a number one goalkeeper, I thought it was time I made my move back home."

Marinovic replaces Filip Kurto, who has left to join new A-League side Western Melbourne.

He says he isn't sure when he'll join his new teammates, as he only just signed the papers so he hasn't yet booked his flights.
