Newcastle Jets midfielder Ruben Zadkovich has put pen-to-paper on a two-year contract extension with the Jets.

Zadkovich, who joined the Jets in 2010, is excited to extend his stay at the Club.

“This is a great Club and I have enjoyed my time here so I am stoked to re-sign for another two years,” Zadkovich said.

“The Jets are the whole package for me; I love this town, the fans and the Club.

“We are a young team and taking on a leadership role is something I have really enjoyed and want to continue.

“I love turning up to training and playing with this team because all the young guys are willing to buy into what we want to achieve.

“I want to lead by example and for the Jets to have a strong finish to the season.”

The Jets are pleased the 26-year old has re-signed with the Club.

“Ruben-s enthusiasm and dedication to the team and our supporters is an asset to the Club,” CEO Robbie Middleby said.

“We feel fortunate to secure Ruben as there was significant interest from other Clubs.”

Coach Gary van Egmond said Zadkovich is a cornerstone of the Jets playing group.

“Ruben has not only matured into a leader on and off the field but his form this season has been outstanding,” van Egmond said.

“He has stepped up this season as a player and is a great mentor to the young players.”
