City agreed to mutually terminate Kalmar’s contract to allow him to join the Wanderers effective immediately, with the 27-year-old to begin training with the Asian Champions League winners on Friday.
Kalmar has signed an Asian Champions League group stage contract as an injury replacement for Brendon Santalab, whose original replacement Kearyn Baccus suffered an injury an training.
“Nick is a quality player who we have been monitoring for some time,” Tsatsimas said.
“Kearyn’s injury is disappointing for the young man especially given his recent performances in the A-League and at the FIFA Club World Cup.
“We have the opportunity to bring in Nick Kalmar who is a quality acquisition and he is sure to serve us well in the lead up to what will be our club’s busiest schedule to date.”
Kalmar made 69 appearances for Melbourne City/Heart, scoring six goals.
“Nick has been a fine servant of this club and a superb clubman since he joined as an inaugural player,” Melbourne City coach John van’t Schip said.
““We wish Nick all the best in the next chapter in his career.”
