Newcastle Jets have offered former Manchester United star Dwight Yorke a six-month deal to become the club's marquee player. Jets owner Con Constantine confirmed that the club were in discussions with the Trinidad & Tobago striker and they would have an answer today.
"Yes, we are talking to Dwight and hope to have an answer in the next 24 hours," Constantine told The Herald.
Yorke's imminent move to the Jets is courtesy of his close friendship with former Sydney FC assistant coach Ian Crook.
Crook joined the Jets a few weeks ago after returning to Australia from Japanese club Avispa Fukuoka where he assisted German World Cup winner Pierre Littbarski.
