Newcastle Jets snap up Payne from Fury

Newcastle Jets have bolstered their squad for next season after signing North Queensland Fury's Chris Payne on a two-year deal.

Payne is set to form part of the Jets' new strike force for next year alongside Ryan Griffiths, who signed a three-year deal last month.

"The Jets have definitely impressed a lot of people in the past couple of months and I'm excited about being a part of the squad next year,'' said the 20-year-old forward. "The club is obviously heading in a great direction and I'm looking forward to contributing.

"For now I want to give my best to the Fury and help my team-mates to some good results for the rest of this season.''

Jets coach Branko Culina was pleased with Payne's acquisition.

"Chris is a promising young player who's got a lot of potential,'' Culina said. "He's been around the A-League for a couple of years now and we think he could be a very good player for us.

"It's a challenge for him now to step up and be part of a wonderful new era for the club.''
