Newcastle Jets have signed former Melbourne Victory player Andrew Nabbout on a two-year deal.

Nabbout, who played 36 matches for the Victory between 2012 and 2015 before being released by the club, spent last season playing at Malaysian side, Negeri Sembilan.

The 23-year-old said he is delighted to have signed with the Jets and is looking forward to returning to the A-League.

“The Jets are the perfect team for me to join,” Nabbout said.

“I want to do everything I can this year to play.

“Scott (Miller) as the Head Coach wants to promote young players, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to play and help the team.

“The training standards since I have got to Newcastle have been good, the meetings and education we're receiving off the pitch is great, and the boys have been very good to me.

“I have a point to prove (in the Hyundai A-League) and I want to repay the faith that Scott has put in me."
