“I feel like I have more desire than ever to play for this club,” said the 21-capped Socceroo.
“We are entering a new era, a new stadium with new training facilities and a fresh beginning for the club. I’m delighted to be a part of it.
“I know last season wasn’t our greatest so I’m determined to help return success to our club when we return home to our new world-class stadium this coming season.”
Grant’s signature will be a relief to the Sky Blues’ Members as he is a fan favourite; while Head Coach Steve Corica also welcomed the return of the experienced full back.
“Rhyan’s quality is in no doubt and he has become one of the leaders of our team and our dressing room,” he said.
“He is an integral part of our club and a major reason why we have enjoyed such success in recent seasons.
“His re-signing for the club gives us a better chance of returning to the top of the ladder and winning more titles.”
Grant has played a record 276 matches for the Sky Blues and scored 13 goals.
