Nichols arrives in Wellington on a two-year deal and as a free agent after short stints with Perth Glory and Indonesian side Persela Lamongan last season.

The Phoenix will be the 29-year-old midfielder's fifth A-League club to date as he looks to revive what was a promising career.

For Rudan both Nichols and Williams bring with them invaluable A-League experience.

"These two are proven A-League competitors - as the statistics prove, they both can scores goals, and they both are capable of a bit of x-factor which can change a game," Rudan said.

The duo join Steven Taylor and Filip Kurto as Wellington's off-season additions to date.
