NEWCASTLE Jets have bolstered their squad with the capture of New Zealand international Jeremy Brockie on a two-year contract.
The 22-year-old has joined Branko Culina's men after a stint with troubled A-League outfit North Queensland Fury.
The All White had his season prematurely cut-short after sustaining a broken leg whilst playing for Fury against Brisbane Roar in January this year, although Brockie is still hopeful of taking his place at the World Cup in June.
Today, Jets CEO John Tsatsimas welcomed the Nelson-born product to the club.
"Jeremy is obviously a very talented young player and we're delighted to have him join us from next season," he said.
"The coaching staff certainly believes that he brings a sense of energy and enthusiasm to the pitch which complements the football style and philosophy implemented by Branko Culina and his staff.
"It's been widely documented that our player retention drive was a successful one, and with the vast majority of the squad from our last campaign having committed their future to the club, the focus has somewhat shifted to bringing in quality players to enhance that established playing roster.
"Certainly Jeremy fits that bill and we look forward to having him join us in Newcastle once the squad resumes training in May."
