Joel missed Sunday's 4-0 thrashing at Sydney FC with a hamstring strain while Adam lasted just 45 minutes before being replaced.

It appears a compromise has been reached with regard to Joel's proposed move to Beijing Guoan.

A loan deal will see the Jets part with the player until the end of the year with the Chinese club agreeing not to use him in ACL matches against the Jets.

Jets owner Con Constantine told The Herald: "The transfer fee they offered was a big deal but rather than sell Joel I'd prefer to loan him out. It is a win-win for both parties. We get money into our coffers and Joel can earn big dollars. At the end of the 12 months we can sit down and talk."

Griffiths himself also seems happy. He said: "This way everyone wins. I'm back in December and I'm still a Jets player."

As for Adam, he has been linked with FC Seoul despite being part of Gold Coast United's plans for next season.

Speaking after yesterday's defeat at Sydney FC, coach van Egmond said all the talk had not exactly helped the player.

He said: "His head's been full of transfer information.

"He's very frustrated because he's wanting the deal to go through, but there's got to be a deal to go through."

The Jets have little time to regroup after a disastrous A-League season with their Asian Champions League campaign starting in early March.
