Western Sydney Wanderers foundation players Mateo Poljak and Labinot Haliti have both joined A-League rivals Newcastle Jets.

Both players have signed two year deals with the Jets after the Wanderers agreed to release them from the final year of their contracts.

“With their understanding of the competition, we will be looking for Mateo and Labinot to help us set continually high standards on and off the field,” said new Newcastle Jets coach Scott Miller.
