Newcastle Jets are ready to release Joel Griffiths to Chinese club Beijing Guoan on loan. Griffiths, 29, is almost certain to join his younger brother, Ryan, at Beijing, with owner Con Constantine softening his stance and now considering a loan deal which will net the club $500,000, says the Newcastle Herald.

Jets midfielder Mark Milligan is set to put pen to paper on a THREE-YEAR contract with China's Shanghai Shenhua.
