Sydney FC has signed former New Zealand Knights midfielder Jonas Salley to a short-term deal for the A-League finals.
Salley will travel with the Blues to Newcastle on Thursday ahead of Friday's return leg of the elimination semi-final.
While the deal has not yet been cleared by Football Federation Australia, it is expected to be given the stamp of approval from the league's governing body on Thursday.
Salley, who played 10 games for the Knights this season, joins Sydney as an injury replacement for Terry McFlynn.
McFlynn suffered a groin injury last Friday as the Blues claimed a 2-1 advantage in the two-legged showdown against the Jets after the first leg at Aussie Stadium.
Salley, along with the rest of the New Zealand squad, came off contract at the end of the regular season after the club's license was returned to the FFA.
